Signing a Partnership Agreement between Elia Nuqul Foundation and Jordanian Egyptian Fajr Company

Within the framework of the social responsibility pursued by the private sector  in Jordan, a partnership agreement was signed today between Elia Nuqul Foundation and Jordanian Egyptian Fajr Company.

Under the agreement signed on behalf of the company by its CEO, Eng. Fouad Rashad Abbas, and for the Foundation, its Chairman, Mr. Ghassan Nuqul, the company will provide university scholarships to a number of the Foundation’s students in public Jordanian universities for the years 2021-2024, to cover their tuition fees, capacity building training programs, and their monthly expenses for transportation throughout their studies. In turn,  Elia Nuqul Foundation will involve the students in all the development programs it offers, in addition to regular and extracurricular courses and training to develop their skills and prepare them to enter the labour market.

This agreement aims to create new success stories and develop the Jordanian society by giving these students the education and skills that will qualify them to be productive, creative and active members of society.

After signing the agreement, Nuqul referred to the role of Fajr Company in supporting the development process through their contribution to the Elia Nuqul Foundation and giving the opportunity for Jordanian youth to pursue their university education. He stressed the importance of forming new partnerships within a systematic strategy of the institution, based on the belief in the importance of effective partnership with various sectors to help Jordanian university students whose their economic conditions did not allow them to complete their educational path and empower and qualify them to enter the labour market.

In turn, Eng. Fouad Rashad confirmed that the partnership agreement with the Foundation aims to expand the implementation of the social responsibility programs adopted by the company, and one of its priorities is to support the education sector as it is an essential pillar for community development, especially providing educational opportunities to motivate students who have the ambition to learn despite their exceptional circumstances, to complete their academic excellence and future success and qualify them to enter the labour market.
