AMMAN — Celebrating His Majesty King Abdullah’s birthday, which falls on Monday, January 30, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, highlighted the King’s most prominent contributions to ameliorating youth issues since assuming his constitutional powers.

Youth received most of His Majesty's attention as he endeavoured to empower them in various fields through youth-related projects and initiatives implemented by the Ministry of Youth. 

In a meeting with the Lower House Financial Committee on January 22, Youth Minister Mohammad Nabulsi affirmed that the ministry’s priority is to modernise and develop youth centres and sports facilities and host international tournaments, stressing that the ministry continues to organise discussions with young people to convey their opinions and suggestions to decision-makers.

Nabulsi added that the Hussein bin Abdullah II Award for Volunteer Service was launched with the aim of promoting a culture of volunteerism among individuals and institutions to serve local communities.

Additionally, the Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) establishes strategic partnerships with young people to enable them to build a more successful and prosperous future for themselves, their families, their communities and their country. 

The CPF focuses on providing platforms that amplify the voices of young people and equip them with needed skills and knowledge to make a difference.

In a strategic partnership with youth, the foundation has established a number of initiatives and programmes including Al Hussein Technical University, Haqiq, NAUA, Nahno, TechWorks, Youth Excellence Fund, Hearing without Borders, One Million Jordanian Coders,  Qusai, Ana Usharek “I participate”, the Al Hussein Fellowship and others, all of which receive Royal attention.
