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.

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

???????????????????????????????  ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????
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.

The Al Hussein Society Annual Bazaar 2014

Posted on: December 12th, 2014 by admin No Comments

 

Al Hussein Society (AHS) held its 36th Annual Bazaar on 12th December 2014 at the Royal Automobile Club of Jordan (RACJ), under the Patronage of HRH Prince Raad Bin Zeid. The bazaar offered items from over 35 participating embassies to almost 3,000 shoppers. This year’s venue also allowed AHS to introduce a food court, which was rich in unique dishes from international cuisines.

The bazaar fell on a sunny Friday enabling shoppers to enjoy the outdoor cafe area as well as the different performances that took place.The performances started with the Baptist School band lead by the talented Ms. Barbara Johnson. Carollers from the International Community School entertained the crowds on the upper terrace of the RACJ with some festive songs, while Al Quds folkloric dance group created an atmosphere of joy on the lower terrace through their ‘dabkeh’ dance. Additionally, a group of orphans from the Anjara church took part in the festivities by performing some songs by the entrance of the bazaar. All in all, the event was a success!

AHS children, staff, and Members of the Board are very appreciative of the international corps in Jordan for supporting this event and turning it into one of Amman’s most awaited annual celebrations. The efforts of Ambassadors and their teams help raise vital funds for AHS programs at the center and throughout Jordan.
