21 May 2015 – Amman: Generations For Peace and Orange Jordan today announce a new phase in their partnership, which will benefit Generations For Peace programmes in schools and community centers across Jordan. The Jordan Schools Programme, which addresses violence in schools, and Social Cohesion Programme, which builds conflict transformation skills at the community level, will both receive direct and in-kind support under the new partnership. Orange Jordan will also continue to support the telecommunications needs of Generations For Peace Amman-based headquarters.
HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, Founder and Chairman of Generations For Peace, stated: “Both Orange Jordan and Generations For Peace have a shared goal to change lives by connecting people and improving communications. This is at the heart of Orange Jordan’s service offering to businesses and communities; it is also at the heart of GFP’s work to transform conflict and reduce violence through dialogue in communities around the world. We are proud to call Orange Jordan our exclusive telecom partner for our Jordan programmes.”
Mr Jean-Francois Thomas, Group Chief Executive Officer of Orange Jordan, said: “We are thrilled to be able to increase our partnership with Generations For Peace, and demonstrate our commitment to improving local communities in Jordan. GFP’s mission aligns directly with our corporate social responsibility to serve our customers and their wider communities.”
Joint marketing efforts will aim to raise awareness and support among Orange Jordan customers for Generations For Peace programmes in schools and communities. In addition, programme participants will have opportunities to engage in Orange Foundation vocational skills training activities, and Orange Jordan employees will also benefit from engagement in Generations For Peace-led volunteer activities in communities. The new agreement builds on the successful partnership Generations For Peace and Orange Jordan have had together since 2012.
