Sept. 26--JERASH -- The Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD) continues to partner with the private sector to plant seeds of change in underprivileged regions, offering higher education to outstanding students.

As part of its ongoing efforts to empower local communities, JOHUD on Monday signed an agreement with PepsiCo to launch the 10th phase of Tomooh Saad Abdul-Latif Scholarship Programme.

The initiative, which started in 2007 in cooperation between JOHUD and PepsiCo, aims at supporting excelling students whose living conditions do not allow them to continue their studies at university.

Under the programme, PepsiCo offers JD140,000 annually to cover tuition fees for underprivileged students.

HRH Princess Basma, the president of the National Goodwill Campaign's higher committee, signed an agreement with PepsiCo General Manager Nidal Hamam and JOHUD Executive Director Farah Daghistani to start implementing the 10th phase of the programme.

During the ceremony, held at the Princess Basma Community Development Centre in Jerash, 48km north of Amman, Salam Hamed, a Tomoh beneficiary, highlighted her experience of joining the programme.

"I can never forget the tears of my parents when they found out that I got a full four-year scholarship to pursue my education. That was a turning point in my life that will always lead me to excel," she noted.

Princess Basma underlined the importance of such initiatives in offering ambitious and hard-working student opportunities to continue their education.

Hamam noted that 180 students benefited from the programme during the 2015-2016 academic year, while a total of 1,572 annual scholarships have been granted over the past nine years, helping 271 students to graduate from public universities.

Also in Jerash, Princess Basma, along with members of the National Goodwill Campaign's higher committee, distributed food parcels to 300 underprivileged families and schoolbags and stationery to 520 students.
