The first day back to school was deemed a success. Children danced, sang popped balloons, had mouthfuls of cupcake, and practically fought over having their photos taken. We sure do celebrate going back to school in style!

Garden Show at The Boulevard

Posted on: April 20th, 2016 by ahsrehab No Comments

 

The  Al Hussein Society / Jordan Center for Training and Inclusion, AHS,  has been providing comprehensive programs for children and adults with physical disabilities in Jordan for the past 40 years.  Their programs rely almost entirely on the donations and generosity of local and international organizations as well as the Jordanian community at large. They are Jordan’s best kept secret.

This year in the first time, ever AHS held a Garden Show hosted by the Boulevard. We witnessed beautiful displays by our local farmers, plant importers, landscapes artists, floral designers and events planners, culminating in what was a visual delight attended by thousands of people in Amman. This show was a one – of – a kind event that helped raise awareness about the Center and raise much-needed funds to support its mission for an inclusive society.

Untitled

Hosted by Boulevard, other sponsors were Jordan Ahli Bank, Amman Academy, Jordan Insurance Co., Umniah, and media sponsors, Fann and Rotana Radio and National Printers.

Several NGOs also participated and added to the knowledge and understanding of local Jordanian flora and fauna- Royal Botanical Gardens, Center for the Built Environment and none other than Ammar Khammash who gave a lecture about the wild beauty of Jordan.

Through the Boulevard, AHS will make this an annual event allowing more visibility not only to itself but also to all those talented plant and flower experts and garden furniture vendors who may otherwise not have such a platform available to them.

So in the spirit of giving Boulevard becomes a supportive partner of the Al Hussein Society.

 

The AHS Playground

Posted on: March 27th, 2016 by ahsrehab No Comments

 

 

???????????????????????????????  ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????
Under the Patronage of HRH Princess Majda Raad, president of Al Hussein Society/Jordan Center for Training and Inclusion (AHS), the opening ceremony of an inclusive playground at the society took place on Wednesday 23rd of March, 2016.

Inclusive playgrounds and parks allow all children with or without disabilities to play and enjoy themselves. Further, these accessible play spaces are safe and easy for every child to use regardless of their abilities. However, lack of these inclusive facilities in Jordan has motivated the AHS to take the lead by building up an accessible playground at the society and provide model for others to follow. Moreover, an accessible play space gives the opportunity to combine therapy with leisure so that children can receive therapeutic interventions while enjoying their time.

It was heart touching to see how delighted Al Hussein Society school children and nursery were during the opening ceremony, and how happy and stress-free the parents were to have some fun with their children. Eventually, we hope our playground develops into a model to be adopted by other institutions to encourage inclusion.

The AHS thanks all those who contributed in the financing , planning, designing of this playground  and thus helping us to  fulfill  our vision and  create an inclusive society.
