Two weeks a group of initiatives including “Under My Olive Tree” met with Her Majesty Queen Rania over lunch. The purpose of the meeting was to shed light on the different initiatives currently working in Jordan.
I briefed Her Majesty on Under My Olive Tree and the purpose of the initiative. I also spoke about the accomplishments we had last Ramadan and Back to School & Back to University campaigns. I also mentioned some of the difficulties we face as a new Non Profit, and how we need to engage the private sector along with the government in more local sustainable projects.
I also suggested that we need to plan the seeds of volunteering in children and students at a very early age since this should be part of the curriculum in schools and universities.
Her Majesty paid a lot of attention to all our concerns, the meeting was very productive and casual.
