HRH Crown Prince Hussein chairs a meeting of the board of trustees of the newly established Crown Prince Foundation
HRH Crown Prince Hussein on Tuesday asserted that the Crown Prince Foundation was established to offer a platform that will support initiatives by Jordanian youths in the social, cultural and know-how fields.
Chairing the first meeting of the Crown Prince Foundation’s board of trustees, Crown Prince Hussein urged the board members to harness their expertise and experiences in the implementation of the programmes and initiatives the foundation has on the drawing board.
He underscored the importance of ongoing and periodic reviews of the initiative, using evaluation tools to guarantee optimal utilisation of their outcome.
The Crown Prince and the foundation's board of trustees reviewed new initiatives and the foundation's agenda for next year.
In this context, the foundation announced the launch of an initiative to protect young Jordanians against the dangers of addiction and smoking, along with another initiative on creativity.
The second initiative is designed to support the country’s economy through providing young Jordanians with jobs after they are trained and encouraged to use their talents.
At the meeting, Wajih Oweis was unanimously elected as vice chairman of the Crown Prince Foundation. The board members also approved the establishment of the Prince Hussein Bin Abdullah II Technical University and to proceed with the project.
A Royal Decree was issued at the beginning of this month naming members of the board of trustees of the foundation, whose main aim is to achieve across-the-board development in Jordan.
This will be achieved through providing direct support to local communities and through contributing to scientific, cultural, sport, educational, social, vocational and health activities
