“To all Jordanian volunteers, I say thank you for all that you do.”
Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan is a dedicated philanthropist herself, so it makes sense that she’s drawing attention to the important work volunteers do.
This week, the royal visited the Nashmi Centre for Youth Empowerment in Amman, where she spoke with young leaders about the importance of giving back.
The conversation centered on taking constructive criticism and positivity, according to Queen Rania’s website, and on the need for “reform, hard work and collaboration.”
Queen Rania shared a clip of her visit on Instagram:
She also used the social media platform to salute her country’s volunteers, writing “to each and every member of the Nashmi Center for Youth Empowerment, and to all Jordanian volunteers, I say thank you for all that you do!”
That’s not all Queen Rania has been up to this week, though. She also stopped by the King Hussein Business Park to chat with start-up founders.
The royal spent time with Ghassan Halawa, founder of Parachute16, a consulting start-up that supports other entrepreneurs.
“Jordan’s hardworking youth never cease to amaze me with their ambitious initiatives,” she wrote on Instagram.
We’re thinking a visit from someone like Queen Rania would make all the hard work that goes into growing a business feel pretty worthwhile.
