Queen Rania: The Woman for all Women
Anyone who puts efforts in improving women’s welfare is commendable. But only a handful is involved in this kind of undertaking. Among this handful of people is Queen Rania of Jordan, hence she was proclaimed one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year.
She is one woman for all women of Jordan. All her efforts are aimed towards elevating the roles and status of women and girls in the society through education. She is aware of the sad plight that young girls and women go through in developing countries as well as in Jordan, and as much as possible she wants to alleviate that with her programs.
And she does so with her Madrasati or “My School” project. Through Madrasati, Her Majesty renovates schools, campaigns for schooling, and creates programs that lend a hand to women entrepreneurs. Thousands of people have already benefited from this project.
Recently, still in line with her advocacy for education, Queen Rania joined the U.N. Foundation’s latest Girl Up program that aims to educate kids in hard-to-reach areas.
And Queen Rania is every bit the modern Queen. She uses technology and even social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube as tools in advancing her advocacies for women and girls empowerment.
Surely, Queen Rania is a woman to look up to!
