AMMAN — Her Majesty Queen Rania on Sunday visited the Jordan River Foundation’s (JRF) Training and Consultancy Centre, which provides training programmes in the areas of child safety and community empowerment.

During her visit, the Queen stopped by two training sessions on child safety and protection. 

The first session, titled “Early Childhood Training Operating Nurseries Foundation”, aims to support, promote and fund the establishment and operation of day care facilities in private sector companies, according to a statement from Her Majesty’s office.

The second session, which focuses on child protection and gender based violence, aims to provide and equip professionals who work directly with abused children and adults with the knowledge and skills required to assess the overall situation of children and women.

Queen Rania also met with a number of JRF staff including JRF Director General Ghaleb Qudah and Deputy Director Danah Al Dajani, and stressed the important role each of them plays that contributes to the success of the foundation. 

Commenting on JRF marking its 20th anniversary, Her Majesty said the foundation must be proud of what it has accomplished so far, noting that this represents an opportunity for JRF to re-evaluate its priorities and methods to meet the needs of individuals and local communities today.

Queen Rania also noted that JRF must set clear strategies, identify effective measurement tools and avoid bureaucracy in order to successfully achieve its goals.

During the meeting, JRF staff members briefed Queen Rania on the foundation’s different projects and achievements, and the various training courses offered by its Training and Consultancy Centre. 

Following the meeting, Her Majesty toured the JRF premises and spoke with a number of its employees.
