AMMAN — Her Majesty Queen Rania visited the Dar Nemeh gift shop and café at the Amman Citadel on Monday, a project run by the Princess Taghrid Institute for Development and Training (PTI) that serves as a platform for marketing locally made products by women from across the Kingdom, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.اضافة اعلان

Upon arrival at the Citadel, Queen Rania was received by PTI chairwoman HRH Princess Taghrid Muhammad, PTI President Zein Majali, and PTI Director Aghadeer Jweihan, who toured the facility with Her Majesty.

Dar Nemeh, which means “The House of Bliss,” is a multipurpose facility that includes a gift shop, café, and traditional restaurant offering local food products, handicrafts, and souvenirs made by women from all over Jordan.
Situated at the Amman Citadel, it provides visitors of the historic site with an experience of contemporary Jordanian culture, by introducing them to high quality handmade products, and allowing them to enjoy traditional dishes and beverages in the heart of one of Amman’s most scenic spots.

Princess Taghrid gave the Queen a brief about the project, highlighting its importance in supporting Jordan’s tourism sector by marketing local handcrafted items made by skilled local beneficiaries. 

After touring the shop and the café, Her Majesty met with some of PTI’s beneficiaries to hear about how Dar Nemeh offers them employment and personal growth.

Dar Nemeh, which has a second branch in Jabal Al-luweibdeh , also markets its products at local bazaars and on online platforms. The project employs over 40 youth and women and supports over 150 vendors across the country.

Queen Rania also met some young adults who left the care of orphanages and are being helped by PTI’s aftercare program, a program sponsored by His Majesty King Abdullah through a royal initiative.

PTI is a local NGO established to solve the ongoing struggles faced by orphans and abandoned youth after the age of 16, by empowering them through training, giving them skills and opportunities, with the aim of integrating them within their communities and alleviating the social stigma they experience. 

PTI has also recently launched female empowerment initiatives, providing professional and vocational training and employment opportunities for women to empower them financially.

The institute, which receives international support from foreign organizations and donors, runs centers to provide its services in eight other locations across Jordan.
