Jordan Kuwait Bank has announced its support for Al-Aman Fund for the Future of Orphans through covering Higher Education expenses for a number of male and female students from the Fund's beneficiaries.

This support initiative comes in response to Al-Aman Fund's "If Only with 1 Dinar” campaign that was launched on the occasion of the Arab Orphan Week that takes place on the first week of April each year. The campaign aims at generating support to help orphans obtain higher education and find job opportunities. This generous initiative is the Bank’s second contribution to the Fund, having supported five beneficiaries from 2008 to 2011.

Through this initiative, Jordan Kuwait Bank will support five male and female students in various higher education majors with the aim of enhancing their academic qualification and accordingly enabling them to acquire a Bachelor's degree.

His Excellency Mr. Abdel-Karim Kabariti, Chairman of Jordan Kuwait Bank Board of Directors said "We believe in the crucial role Al-Aman Fund plays in the Jordanian society through supporting young orphans in pursuing their higher education. Therefore, and stemming from our confidence in this initiative; we have renewed our support with the aim of responding to our unchanged vision of being responsible towards our community."

Jordan Kuwait Bank has launched a number of Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives, one of which is the support for Al-Aman Fund, aiming at strengthening the Bank's role in serving local communities as emphasized by H.E Mr. Kabariti.

Moreover, H.E Mr. Kabariti called upon private sector entities to work closely with charity organizations to support them fulfill their noble purposes.

It's worth mentioning that the Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah launched Al- Aman campaign in 2003, that later was institutionalized as a charity non-for-profit organization under the name Al-Aman Fund for the Future of Orphans in 2006. The Fund’s beneficiaries reached 1350 orphans amongst which 400 have graduated and started their professional life independently.

Today, Jordan Kuwait Bank is considered one of the few successful Jordanian enterprises established with Inter-Arab interests.
