Jordan River Foundation

For over a decade, the Jordan River Foundation (JRF) has strived to bring relief, security, and opportunity to those Jordanians who need it most.  In the beginning, JRF partnered with disadvantaged families to provide them with skills and knowledge to raise their income, and with it their self-esteem and self-confidence.

As JRF has matured, experience has expanded and emboldened our ambitions.  Now JRF believes in a sustainable, holistic approach, investing in communities, focusing on the needs of whole villages, and inspiring locals to take on the mantel of civil society themselves and work towards their own development.

In 2007, JRF and an international corporation, partnered with a village in Ajloun, called Rasoun.  Cooperation quickly led to improved safety for the local girls’ school, medical equipment for the health centre, and micro-loans for residents. Inspired that change can happen, locals now have plans for a bakery, a nursery, and a much-needed bus route to Irbid.

This dramatic development shows how far Jordan has come. JRF has been at the forefront of this trend, leading by example, and using the power of partnerships between private, public, and non-profits sectors for the benefit of all Jordan.

The Foundation has also built an international reputation protecting our children from abuse.  Too many children around the world are subject to the shadow of cruelty, and here in Jordan we have worked hard to shine a light on their lives by rescuing them from abusive hands.

Today, we have become a centre of excellence, passing on our know-how across Jordan and the region, teaching others how to protect children and heal whole families.  Our work has grown beyond protective to preventative care, advocating against child abuse, galvanizing public support, and guiding government bodies in child safety.

In this sense, JRF has evolved. Once, it was a social service provider, helping poor women start a business or farmers learn management skills. Now, it has become a national institution, integral to the well-being and prosperity of our most vulnerable citizens; and one of which we are all proud.

I suppose the worst disease in the world is the Poverty. When you feel the Hunger relationship are broken. If we don't fight the Hunger we cannot talk about culture and education. Emiliano From Rome.
