03 Jul Al Aman Fund for the Future of Orphans Hosts Annual Iftar Event
Al Aman Fund for the Future of Orphans hosted an Iftar event for its beneficiaries on Monday, celebrating its efforts to empower Jordan’s orphans through education.
An initiative of the Queen Rania Foundation for Education and Development, Al-Aman Fund equips orphans, who have reached legal adulthood, with education, training, and necessary skills to become self-reliant and productive members of society.
The fund supports orphans after the age of 18, aiming to assist them during the vulnerable and pivotal phase of early adulthood following their graduation from government-run orphanages. During the event, which was held at the King Hussein Club in Amman, General Manager Mr. Ibrahim Al Ahmad presented the fund’s achievements in supporting Jordanian orphans’ higher education.
The fund offers education scholarships, vocational training, cash stipends, guidance and counseling, an internship and employment program, as well as medical insurance.
Showcasing Al Aman Fund’s efforts to help orphans identify their passions and ambitions, Mr. Al Ahmad introduced a number of the fund’s beneficiaries, who shared their success stories.
The event also included a display of expressive art pieces created by Al Aman Fund beneficiaries during art psychotherapy sessions in collaboration with Kaynouna Art Therapy Center.
Earlier this month, Al-Aman Fund launched its annual Ramadan campaign titled “Through Education, An Orphan’s Future Begins at 18,” with the aim of encouraging the public to contribute toward the education of orphans.
The fund has made donating easier by allowing donors to call its direct donation number 06- 5330500 in order to arrange for a donation pick-up at any location. Donors may also make a deposit into the fund’s account at any bank in the Kingdom.
To further facilitate the donation process, Al-Aman Fund representatives are available at various shopping centers across Amman, such as City Mall, Cozmo (7th Circle), Safeway (7th Circle), Mecca Mall, Taj Mall, and Abdali Mall. Donation boxes can also be found in major stores, hospitals, and banks.
Launched in 2003 by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, nearly 3,482 orphans have nbenefitted from Al Aman Fund’s programs, including 2,335 orphans who have successfully graduated and begun their career paths.
