Aiming at opening horizons of exchange of experiences for the institutionalization of work between the two sides, Yarmouk University, represented by Princess Basma Center for Jordanian Women’s Studies, signed a memorandum of understanding with the National Committee for Women’s Affairs. Such an exchange will help implement the activities of the training program for members of elected councils in the North Region (governorate, municipal, and local councils) at Yarmouk University. The activities will be implemented in their first stage in partnership with the Hayvos Foundation –“Women Empowerment for Leadership Project in Trade and Professional Syndicates and Political Parties”.

Kafafi stressed that the committee’s officials and Yarmouk University, represented by Princess Basma Center for Jordanian Women’s Studies, are all keen to support and implement the goal of empowering, training, and refining women skills in order to qualify them to claiming leadership positions.
