Orange Jordan, in partnership with the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD) celebrated the graduation of the first batch of women who participated in the Women's Digital Centres Programme.
The programme was executed under the umbrella of Orange Digital Centres, and was implemented at five different locations affiliated with JOHUD in Jordan.
One hundred women from different regions benefited from the intensive training they received. The training included digital, management and entrepreneurship skills, learning how to build their startups and promote them through social media channels, and a focus on enhancing and developing professional experience and achieving financial independence.
The graduation ceremony was attended by JOHUD executive director Farah Al-Daghestani and Orange Jordan CEO Thierry Marigny. In a joint press release, Orange Jordan said women's empowerment was a top priority within its strategy to develop local communities.
The company also clarified that the programme's success was demonstrated in the ability of participating women to start their own projects in a short period of time. JOHUD considers that the ICT sector contributes significantly to achieving development through creating more opportunities, especially for women.
JOHUD also pointed out its efforts in empowering Jordanian women across different regions, both socially and economically.
