AMMAN — HRH Crown Prince Hussein on Sunday paid a visit to Karak Creativity Club, where he was acquainted with the achievements and training programmes of the youth facility, a Royal Court statement said.

The Prince commended the club for its accomplishments, stressing the importance of spreading the club's concept across the Kingdom.

He stressed it was vital to improve the capabilities of Jordanian youth and empowering them to contribute to the development process through innovative solutions. 

His Royal Highness toured the club, the first of its kind in town, 180km southwest of Amman, and was briefed on the plans designed to improve the skills of children and young people from the age of five to early twenties.

He also had a firsthand look at the technology education programmes, which include training on robot building, electronics and critical thinking, in addition to music programmes, which culminated into gathering a musical band that has participated in various performances across Jordan.

He also took a look at paintings by the club members that focused on environment, citizenship and social issues, in addition to programmes to teach filmmaking and animation.

The Prince attended a discussion session titled "Creativity: Essential or a Luxury", in which participants discussed the importance of improving creativity for young people to address economic and social challenges.

Karak Creativity Club was established in 2010 as a non-profit institution that works on empowering young people in Karak and enhancing creativity among them, with plans to duplicate the experience in other parts of the Kingdom. 

The Crown Prince also visited Karak Castle where he toured the landmark and chatted with a number of tourists of various nationalities.
