Jordan Investment Trust P.L.C. (Jordinvest), one of the leading providers of comprehensive investment and financial services locally and regionally, recently renewed its support for the Madrasati Initiative by procuring 40 desktop computers distributed across five different schools around the Kingdom.
Launched last year by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, Madrasati is an innovative initiative which seeks to renovate the infrastructure of more than 500 public schools across the Kingdom. The initiative is a collaboration between both private and public sectors and civil societies, all of whom have joined forces to create a better learning environment for future generations.
Commenting on their recent contribution to the initiative, Jordinvest's CEO Ahmad Tantash said: "Jordinvest firmly believes that the private sector has a major role to play in supporting initiatives geared toward the betterment of its surrounding community, particularly those that tackle education reform. Such initiatives lay the foundation for a brighter future and are beneficial to our social development."
Tantash added that Jordinvest plans to continue supporting education reform in the Kingdom.
The Madrasati schools benefiting from the company's contribution included Hala Bint Khweiled Secondary School for Girls in Salt, Rimone Elementary School for Girls in Jerash, Al Kindi Elementary School for Boys in Al Hashmi Shamali in Amman, Shajaret Al Dur School Elementary School in Sahab, and Al Rumeil Secondary School for Girls in Um Al Rasas.
Last year, Jordinvest contributed to the Madrasati Initiative in an agreement signed with the Jordan River Foundation, which saw the company donate JD 20,000 to the Primary school in Abu Alanda. The contribution supported the renovation of the school’s facilities and infrastructure in accordance with the findings of needs- based assessment conducted at the time.
