The Queen had met the beneficiaries who run 100 small projects across Jordan in October and supported them with additional funding to help cushion the pandemic’s impact on their initiatives, a statement by Her Majesty’s office said.

Founder of the Community Centers Association (CCA) Sari Nasser and CCA President Firyal Saleh attended the meeting where Her Majesty heard from the project owners about the progress of their businesses and the effect of last year’s grants on their performance.

The owners explained how the additional funds have created new opportunities for increased productivity, enhanced the quality of their products, and improved their marketing and packaging efforts.

The Queen stated that the pandemic’s impact has not spared anyone but disproportionately affected some more than others.

Originally implemented by the CCA, with the support of a Royal grant and the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation, the income-generating projects cover various vocational fields, chief of which are agriculture, raising livestock, handicrafts, sewing, construction, and beauty treatments and services.
