Through this agreement, customers can support the non-profit’s beneficiaries directly through the Talabat app, with all proceeds going directly to local, home-based female entrepreneurs.

Keys for Sustainable Development aims to assist women working from their homes, especially widows, orphans, and those with special needs. The organization links these women up with social investors and microfinance institutions, and also equips them with the skills and tools needed to develop sustainable, income-generating home businesses.

Commenting on the agreement, Managing Director of Talabat Jordan Hala Siraj said the company’s support for Keys for Sustainable Development was part of its “ongoing commitment to women’s empowerment”, the statement read.

Keys for Sustainable Development’s store on the Talabat app will sell traditional Jordanian handicrafts, handmade soaps, and artisanal food items, all produced by the organization’s beneficiaries. Customers who purchase these products will be directly supporting the wellbeing of local female entrepreneurs.

Thabet Al-Nabulsi, founder and managing partner of Keys for Sustainable Development, said that through its partnership with Talabat the non-profit was broadening its “base of selling and promoting Jordanian women's products” and encouraging “more people to support these entrepreneurs and small home business owners by purchasing their products”.
