As part of its continuous efforts to support the Madrasati Initiative launched by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Cairo Amman Bank announced its sponsorship of the Qoraiqera General School for Girls in the Aqaba governorate, which became in effect the second school sponsored by the bank under the initiative, next to the Rimone Primary School for Girls in Jerash.
Following the extensive needs assessment the bank intends to conduct in order to gauge the most urgent needs of the school and its students, the bank will work towards securing a wholesome educational environment within the school, starting with a complete renovation of its infrastructure, which will reflect positively on the overall experience of both students and teaching staff. The bank's General Manager Kamal Bakri explained that the bank is working towards strengthening its partnership with Madrasati due to the project's far-reaching influence on the very fabric of society.
"We are prepared to support any national initiative that seeks to improve the quality of life for Jordanians as we collaborate towards securing a better Jordan for all," he added.
Officials at Cairo Amman Bank had indicated that this step comes to reflect the bank's commitment to its local community, particularly its students, who are the building blocks of the future.
Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah had launched the Madrasati Initiative in April 2008 with the objective of securing a more wholesome educational environment in Jordan by drawing on private sector support in the rehabilitation of 500 public schools throughout the Kingdom.
