Since its establishment, Bank of Jordan has been keen to pay back the local community as it continued to support various scientific, cultural, sports, and social initiatives. In the field of education, which was a priority sector in 2009, the bank signed with Hikayat Simsim, the Jordanian version of the international “Sesame Street” series. The agreement will ensure the creation and distribution of educational messages to children aged between 4-7 years.
The bank also sponsored the Month of Jordan celebrations organized by the Children Museum in May on the occasion of the Independence and Labor days. Added to that, it supported Al-Araqam School under the Madrasati initiative that was launched by Her Majesty Queen Rania in April 2008 aimed at enhancing the education environment and communication in schools. Bank of Jordan also provided training opportunities to around 263 college and university students. Furthermore, the bank participated in several charitable projects organized in Ramadan in coordination with the Jordan Hashemite Fund for Human Development and distributed in kind assistance and school bags to the less advantaged. The bank also supported several charities including the SOS children villages in Amman and Aqaba, and the Disabled Children Society in addition to sponsoring Bank of Jordan's karting team for the third consecutive year.
The bank’s total contributions to the local community exceeded JD420 thousand in 2011.
