It's a shame Rania isn't attending the Thai celebrations, I was looking forward to seeing her there. At least she's doing something worthwhile and has a legitimate excuse though.

SHUNEH, Jordan -- Women leaders, including Jordan's Queen Rania and former US secretary of state Madeleine Albright, pledged on Sunday to mobilize for their sisters and children across the world.

Thanks for the pictures of the gala dinner. I love Rania's dress, it's gorgeous! She does look incredibly tired though.
Princess Muna looks lovely as well and that terracotta colour really suits her.

And slightly OT, but how beautiful are the flowers in the picture?!

DEAD SEA — Jordan has spent almost $1 billion on reforming its education system since 1998, Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Suhair Al-Ali said on Sunday evening.

The minister made the remarks during a session on "Making a Difference: Lessons Learned from Major Initiatives to Date," part of the ongoing activities of a three-day women's conference.LINK

Dead Sea, June 13(Petra) -- Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah's speech in the Conference of Global Women's Action Network for Children, currently being held at the Dead Sea shore, gained special importance.

The Queen's speech included an invitation to unify efforts to specify, support and fund programs to assist females and children to launch a global women's action network for children.

"In February 2004, 35 women from around the world gathered in Bellagio, Italy, to form the network motivated by a vision of a just and equitable world where the needs and rights of women and children are met and assured.

Former US Secretary of State Madeline Albright, one of the five founders of the network, said it was time the world paid attention to women's health and education.

"We are here to serve notice that women and children have been dying needlessly for too long, that every life matters, and that a global network is coming together determined to defend children and save women's lives," Albright said in her address."

An interesting editorial about the Conference:

Working to advance women's rights and to promote their well-being means working for the advancement and the well-being of the entire human kind.

This is one of the most important messages emerging from the three-day international conference, "Mobilising for Action," closing today at the Dead Sea. COMPLETE-EDITORIAL

Some of the links I found particularly interesting:

a strategic, long term action plan that will include ... developing and mounting a powerful, sustained, strategic multimedia public awareness campaign ... establishing a Global Women's Action Network for Children interactive website ... and targeting (within 90 days) two or three nations to accelerate the rate of progress on our two goals through a range of advocacy, leadership and community capacity building strategies and infrastructure development."
http://releases.usnewswire.com/GetRelease.asp?id=67451

The network will be "a new international advocacy group led by prominent women from around the world dedicated to identifying, funding and supporting programs to help women, girls, and infants," organizers said
http://www.metimes.com/articles/norm...2-060440-9768r

The Conferees also agreed on a key set of recommendations that will be used to develop an action plan. Conference co-conveners agreed that they will meet within 30 - 45 days to fully flesh out the full action plan and a coordinating infrastructure which ensures its effective implementation and the ongoing advice and input of key representatives from each region of the world. It will be housed at the Children's Defense Fund with dedicated staff.
http://releases.usnewswire.com/GetRelease.asp?id=67457 This link is the most detailed regarding their "plan of action".

First Lady of Ukraine met Queen Rania Al-Abdullah.......
In her speech, Mrs. Yushchenko focused on the health effects of the Chornobyl accident and problems of health care for children in Ukraine, the president press office reported.

JORDAN: Women's conference tackles mortality rates and girl's education

AMMAN, 14 June (IRIN) - Prominent women leaders from around the world gathered in a three-day conference at the Dead Sea in Jordan earlier this week for the launch of a Global Women's Action Network to combat newborn mortality and to ensure that girls everywhere have access to education.

"The Global Women's Action Network for Children was launched to tackle some of humanity's oldest tragedies: the needless deaths of millions of mothers and babies every year and the wasted potential of tens of millions of girls who are kept out of school," said Queen Rania of Jordan, who patronised the conference.

The event, titled 'Mobilizing for Action', was co-hosted by the Jordanian National Centre for Family Affairs (NCFA) and the US-based NGO Children's Defence Fund (CDF).
.....
Participants also agreed to establish an innovation fund that would allocate finance and resources to support women's and children's programmes around the world where such services are lacking but strongly needed. Reuters Alertnet

Jordan's queen bats for kids

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) - Jordan's Queen Rania joined top female humanitarian leaders yesterday in launching a global media initiative aimed at improving children's health and education around the world.

The Global Women's Action Network for Children would mount a public awareness campaign to reverse high maternal and infant mortality rates and increase girls' access to education, said Marion Wright Edelman, president of the US-based Children's Defense Fund.

Queen Rania told The Associated Press in a written interview that the network would push cost-effective measures to improve global conditions for women and children. Knit caps to keep newborns warm and clean razor blades to cut umbilical cords can save three out of four infants, she said.
