مؤسسة نهر الاردن
The Jordan River Foundation (JRF), established in 1995 and Chaired by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah, is a non-profit Jordanian non-governmental organization (NGO).
JRF, in partnership with stakeholders, aims to develop a dynamic Jordanian society by initiating and supporting sustainable social, economic and cultural programs that empower communities and individuals based on their needs and priorities to ultimately improve the quality of life and secure a better future for all Jordanians.
At the outset, the Foundation initiated socio-economic projects for women to provide employment opportunities that enhanced their livelihood while developing their knowledge and skills in handicraft production and entrepreneurship.
These projects benefited thousands of individuals, directly and indirectly, and continue to generate income for vulnerable communities and families.
As the Foundation matured, and the context of development evolved in Jordan, the Foundation expanded its approach to one of sustainable community investments, integrating and serving community development needs in two main areas of concentration; Child Safety and Protection and Community Empowerment.
