Dear Queen Rania of Jordan,
I am a student at Durham Trinity School in Durham City, U.K, my homeland. Today we had 13 Jordanian visitors, most being teachers, at our school. I really enjoyed learning about Jordan. They told me about the beautiful ancient buildings in Petra. They let us smell the herbs and spices used in Jordanian cooking. I tasted figs, graopes and melon. It was a great workshop.

We loved meeting the Jordanian group and look forward to working with pupils in their schools.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and please come to visit our very special school.

Yours sincerely,
Alex Jones

Dear Queen Rania,

I am a Deputy Headteacher of Durham Trinity School, a special school in the beautiful city of Durham, in the north east of England. We have just commenced a Connecting Classrooms programme working with ten schools in Jordan. This exciting project is offered by the British Council and links schools in Jordan with schools in County Durham. Tomorrow our children will get to meet ten teachers from Jordan when they deliver a workshop at our school. One great aim at Durham Trinity School is to raise the profile of those with special educational needs locally and globally, therfor it is wonderful to work on a British Jordanian programme which will help us thrive towards equality in education for all.

Hopefully our project will continue for many years.

Yours most sincerely,
Ann Southren

Your Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan,
I relate a lovely example of italian 1GOAL: my friend Prof. Rita Poletti is building a school for African pupils. Rita writes books of maths for the Principato Editore in Milan and every year she goes to Africa to educate the poor children.
She is very very nice. In a first time she thougth to create an orphanage but I told her about the GCE and now she is creating a school in Kenya (Mjanaheri).
How is possible to send You the photos of Prof.Rita Poletti?
We believe in Education For All.

All the best to You
Yours Sincerely

Prof. Lidia Panizzon

Your Majesty,,,
I am very proud of all what we have here in Jordan. It is the first time where any one can connect with the Queen and express his/her feelings and discuss with her personal and public issues.

On behalf of all this generation who believes in this great leadership of the Hashemite Royal family governed and steered with his majesty king Abdulla II, I would like to thank you for this great open channel you already offered us to be linked physically with your majesty as you already linked with children, youth, women, and all the people of Jordan.

I just want to say Big Thank You.

Respectfully yours,

Dr. Amjed Al-Fahoum

Your majesty Queen Rania, Queen of Jordan,

I am a writer for PlusVe magazine in the United Kingdom and Europe and am greatly impressed by your humanity, endless work for the empowerment of women and the forward education of our next generation who will inherit the responsibilities of our legacy on the world. our main topic is HIV and education. Whilst much is known on how we are tackling this global pandemic in Africa and the western community I am finding it difficult to put a Middle Eastern perspective and understanding to these issues.

Mainly because of the percieved and intrinsically private world in which women live. The Hashemite Kingdom is probably the most open and forward thinking of the Muslim world today, affording women rights denied elsewhere (this is my perception and I apologies if I have this wrong, media does sometimes portray a somewhat biased opinion.)

What I am trying to find out really is how much of a problem HIV/AIDS is in the Middle East, what kind of education programmes there are, what kind of access there is to treatment and medication and if that treatment and support structures, groups is readily accessed by people affected.

I understand that this is a "thorny" topic for debate/discussion but following your other campaigns I hope it is one that you will feel able to address and give a point of view.

With kind regards

Your Majesty Queen Rania,
I'm very happy to have this opportunity and contact you directly, it is unusual and a dream all over the world for the people to contact their leaders, but with your Majesty and in our country the dream becomes a real event, so we are lucky to have His Majesty King Abdulla and your Majesty our leaders.

Women empowerment and women and child rights are broad concepts can be translated by many ways to be practical concepts, one of these ways is to provide a working place with child care facilities (nursery or preschool classes), from this I would like to start my comment.

As it is well known for every one that your Majesty does not hesitate to provide help for any one, and as a motivation for working women, we- a group of 300 working women at The Hashemite University- would like to ask you (from deep of our hearts) to help us in establishing a child care facility at our university,which give our children their rights to be with their Mums during the critical age (below five years); and support the women psychologically by keeping them close to their children. We have been asking about this facility for many years but there is no response from the administrators of the university. We are keening to have the nursery by your Patronage, so we can perform our roles -being a mothers and working mothers- effectively and then empower ourselves and our country.

Warm Regards,
On behalf of mother at Hashemite University,
