Crown Prince visits income-generating project in Thiban funded through Inhad
His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II on Tuesday visited an income-generating project in Thiban, Madaba, which was funded through the National Self-employment Programme “Inhad”.
During the visit to a fish breeding farm in Wadi Al Waleh, Crown Prince Al Hussein commended income-generating projects that create employment for young Jordanians.
His Royal Highness, accompanied by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Maj. Gen. Yousef Hneiti, noted the importance of encouraging self-employment culture and launching income-generating projects in various sectors, to achieve economic growth.
The Crown Prince listened to a briefing by farm founder Kaseb Shakhanbeh about his experience.
Shakhanbeh said investing in private projects is better than a traditional job in terms of income, and it also creates job opportunities for other youths seeking employment.
“Inhad” is in line with His Majesty King Abdullah’s vision to reduce unemployment by nurturing a self-employment culture.
The programme targets beneficiaries between the ages of 18 and 45, and targets unemployed youths in Jordan’s governorates and remote areas, offering them training to enable them to launch their own projects.
