As part of its ongoing commitment to improving educational opportunities for Aqaba residents, and the southern area of the Kingdom of Jordan in general, Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT), recently conducted its annual ‘Ekfal Taleb’ campaign, providing school supplies to hundreds of students in Aqaba and its surrounding villages. ACT’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee helped to prepare and distribute school bags to underprivileged children throughout the Aqaba governorate on their first day of school. Each bag was stocked with an array of school supplies and educational materials, ensuring that the students had enough supplies to last the entire school year.
A total of 800 bags were distributed to children across11 different schools. Along with various community initiatives, the programme – now in its 8th year – aims to ensure that ACT has a significant and positive impact across three key socioeconomic pillars: education, wellbeing and environment.
