School Educational Grant
Tamweelcom became interested in education after witnessing the growing rate of school dropouts, an alarming trend that is increasing in Jordan. It is more prevalent in poor areas where children are obliged to contribute to the family income; and the high cost of school fees and supplies increases the financial burdens already shouldered by poor families.
The Educational Fund was established in 2007 to provide clients with grants to support their children while in school. The grant covers tuition fees, uniforms, books, supplies and daily pocket money.
The programe also targeting the local community through distributing School back bags filled with stationary to primary students, in government and UNWRA schools in Jordan, The School Bags Distribution disburses backpacks to the children of "committed" clients and other students who attend schools in poor communities.
In 2010, Tamweelcom signed a cooperative agreement with the Jubilee School (also owned by the King Hussein Foundation) allowing Tamweelcom to donate scholarships to nine academically-outstanding students, located in remote and low-income areas; enabling those students to join the School and reap the benefits of its high educational standards and resources.
