Her Majesty Queen Rania also noted that:
“…each beneficiary represents a model of the successful and hardworking Jordanian woman who supports her family and insists on being part of society’s fabric of productive women. I would like you to be just as proud of yourselves as I am of you, and of everything you do for your families. Your success paves the way for the empowerment of many other women in Jordan..”
Through its series of social enterprises, the Jordan River Foundation hopes to revive traditional cooking and Bedouin-inspired arts and crafts. The foundation currently provides thousands of Jordanian women with livelihoods and a stable source of income, and in 2021 alone it managed to create over 660 employment opportunities through initiatives like Al Karma Kitchen and Jordan River Designs.
