AMMAN — Members of the Senate’s National Youth Dialogue Committee on Wednesday visited the Crown Prince Foundation (CPF), where they were briefed on its youth-related objectives, priorities and achievements.
The visit was led by Senator Rabha Dabbas who said that the creation of youth initiatives was inspired by the “Senate’s belief in the importance of integrating youth in the process of development and reform by encouraging them to play an active role in society and giving within them a sense of patriotism and duty towards the Kingdom’s causes”.
Dabbas pointed out that the shared objectives between the committee and the CPF are what inspired the visit, which aim at establishing cooperation in the face of the challenges that confront the youth, in addition to providing them with suitable conditions within various fields.
She also said that members of the committee have carried out interviews with Jordanian youths from around the Kingdom to listen to their ideas, inspire them to be proactive and promote self-reliance.
During the visit, CPF CEO Tamam Mango gave a presentation on the foundation, which was established in 2015, a statement carried by the Jordan News Agency, Petra, said.
The presentation focused on the CPF’s three core values: creation, pioneering and skills, leadership and excellence of the youth and community service, Petra reported.
Mango affirmed that the CPF and all of its divisions have the youth as their priority, as the foundation has organised a variety of initiatives, programmes and activities pertaining to technical training and education, invigorating creativity and the exchange of expertise with a variety of partner institutions, foremost of which is the private sector.
The senators commended the CPF’s efforts in developing charity and social work by supporting and empowering the youth to invest their energy and creativity.
They also called on the youth to benefit from the various CPF activities and initiatives in order to hone their skills, develop their abilities and build their character.
A number of senators pointed to the importance of creating an environment that motivates the youth to engage their entrepreneurial abilities with projects that enhance services and manual labour as opposed to working towards the automation of the construction and agricultural sectors, according to Petra.
