AMMAN — The Goodwill Campaign, implemented by the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD), on Monday offered financial support to the Yanabee Kawthar charity organisation in Zarqa Governorate to establish a training project for local women, according to a JOHUD statement.

The campaign also provided scholarships to several university students, supported women to help them establish their own home-based business start-ups, and distributed food parcels to 250 families in the area. 

The donations were part of a Goodwill's Ramadan campaign, which seeks to enhance the living conditions of the underprivileged families across the Kingdom, help establish income-generating projects, and support the youth in pursuing higher education degrees.

During the distribution, HRH Princess Basma, president of the Goodwill Campaign's higher committee, stressed the campaign's keenness on providing help and support to vulnerable families and individuals through various programmes, which contribute to fostering social and human development.

She then visited the headquarters of the women’s Zakat committee, which was launched 18 years ago, and the Yanabee Kawthar charity organisation in Zarqa Governorate, where she met with several women who spoke about their ideas and home-based projects.

President of the Zakat committee Dalal Abu Sneineh displayed the committee's activities in supporting over 300 underprivileged families in the area through monthly financial and in-kind aid, while the President of Yanabee Kawthar Hana Agha displayed the organisation's activities and plans for conducting training projects that aim at empowering women. 

For her part, Princess Basma said that the Jordanian women have proved their independence and capability to help their families and enhance their living conditions, expressing the campaign's keenness on supporting women's projects.
