AMMAN — Ruwwad Al Tanmeya this week celebrated the graduation of 50 young scholars who successfully completed their education at local universities and vocational colleges this year. 

The graduates are from the Mousab Khorma Youth Education and Empowerment Fund in Jabal Al Natheef in Amman, as well as the Ruwwad Al Tafileh and the Ruwwad Al Beidha scholarship funds, according to a statement e-mailed to The Jordan Times. 

The graduates bring the total number of Ruwwad youth scholarships to 946 since the organisation’s establishment in 2005.

As part of the graduation ceremony, which took place on Saturday, Ruwwad organised an interactive event titled, “Enhancing Job Opportunities through the Discovery of Places, Networking and Valuable Relations”, in collaboration with online platform, Jeeran, the statement said.

The event highlighted the importance of creating a communication and networking platform that allows representatives from different sectors to interact and exchange expertise. 

Ruwwad Chairman Fadi Ghandour said the initiative demonstrates the importance of involving the private sector and business owners in corporate social responsibility and youth empowerment. 

He added that Ruwwad is a testament to what can be achieved when community contribution and engagement unite. 

“Ruwwad was not established to serve as a mere charity project, but as a representation of the crucial role the private sector plays in advancing marginalised communities.”
