28 May 2015 – Amman: Generations For Peace and DHL Express, Jordan today announced an exciting new phase in their partnership together, increasing DHL’s support to ensure even greater sustainability and impact in the Generations For Peace Jordan Schools Programme. DHL will also continue to support global shipments to Generations For Peace programmes across the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Asia.
Generations For Peace focuses on empowering teachers and students to address local issues of conflict within schools, which compliments and aligns with DHL’s own “Go Teach” corporate social responsibility goals. It is this shared understanding of the fundamental importance of education, youth leadership and community empowerment that guides the partnership in its promising new chapter.
Mr Mahmoud Haj Hussein, Country Manager for DHL Express Jordan, said: “Ours is a relationship that has been nurtured over three years and we are delighted to be able to further build on our commitment to Generations For Peace. At the heart of our highly valued collaboration, is the promise that we are both dedicated to delivering excellence, a brighter future and significant improvements to many people’s lives.”
Commenting on the additional value of this support, HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, Founder and Chairman of Generations For Peace, stated: “Whilst hailing from different enterprise sectors, we share the common objectives and values that true partnership requires; we both believe that in working together we can achieve more positive impact.”
To mark this important milestone in the partnership, HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein attended a special DHL event on 26 May celebrating Jordan Independence Day, in the presence of Mr Mahmoud Haj Hussein and his fellow DHL Express senior management team.
