AMMAN, November 23, 2017

PepsiCo-Jordan has signed an agreement with the Jordan River Foundation (JRF), committing to provide financial support for the development and expansion of Al-Karma Kitchen, one of JRF’s key development projects in Jabal Al-Nasr, East Amman, Jordan.

Al Karma Kitchen, the catering business, is one of the Jordan River Foundation's community empowering projects and has been running since 2006.

The agreement was signed at the company’s headquarters by PepsiCo-Jordan’s general manager Eng Nidal Hamam, and JRF’s director general Enaam Barrishi, said a statement.

This agreement reflects PepsiCo-Jordan’s efforts to empower Jordanian women and enhance their role in society, as it will help elevate the Kitchen’s productivity and improve the performance of the women who work within it, as well as provide new employment opportunities for those who live nearby, it said.

Hamam said: “We are delighted to partner with JRF, with whom we share a vision of empowering women to help them achieve their independence, financial security and a better standard of living.”

“PepsiCo-Jordan is committed to supporting local projects that promote the participation of women in the labour market, which in turn enhances economic and social development, as well as nurtures Jordan’s economy,” he added.

JRF’s director general Enaam Barrishi commended PepsiCo-Jordan’s support of the development and expansion of Al Karma Kitchen in Al Nasr area, and its role in contributing to the Foundation’s mission of offering development programs and projects related to the social and economic empowerment of women across the kingdom, which is part of the Foundation's efforts to support local communities by offering economic opportunities that sustain incomes and improve livelihoods, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
