"Princess Basma looked like she was really wracked with grief after KH's death. In a few shots, it seemed QN was holding her up and comforting her--Basma looked that shell-shocked. Does she ever give interviews and does she ever talk about KH and how she endured his loss? Others have so I thought she might, too."

I can't be certain of this but i seem to recall that when King Hussein first became ill, Princess Basma offered to help by donating bone marrow (again I@m not certain). I cant' remember if they were able to or not, but I remember eharing that the cancer was too far along for her to do anything.

Thank you, I wasn't sure whether she had actually donated, either way it's so tragic, if that were one of my siblings I can't imagine how I would have felt.

Babies have 9 months pregnency durationm not 12 ! Some have less, like 7 or maybe 6 months. So, if she got married in Sept. 2004 and gave birth in Oct. 2005, there's a period of 13 months. Since pregnency takes 9 months, there are an extra 4 months were she wasn't pregnent.
She must had been pregnent--since she gave birth in Oct--in Jan/Feb 2005, her wedding was in Sept.2004, she must had been not pregnent during these months: Sept.2004, Oct.2004, Nov.2004 and Dec.2004, then she got pregnent in Jan/Feb 2005 and stayed so, thankfully by the grace of God, till 9 months :Jan.2005,Feb.2005, March 2005, Aprlil 2005, June2005, July2005, August 2005, Sept.2005 and gave birth in Oct.2005. I see nothing wrong in that, you obviously misscalculated the pregnency period.
Anyway, Congrats. for Farah and Princess Basma, may God surround the baby with good helth always. Oh, and I loved the name too :o

Women's representation in decision-making positions examined

AMMAN — HRH Princess Basma on Wednesday said that women's representation in decision-making positions continues to be of serious concern.
Speaking at the UN missions' commemoration of International Women's Day yesterday, the Princess told the gathering: "As important as it is for us Jordanian women to see a higher numerical representation of women, I believe that we should be working at the same time to ensure a paradigm shift that allows political actors, both men and women, to focus on gender equality policy development."
"Our future direction should be to go beyond the numbers and ensure that there are more active and effective voices among decision-makers calling for and working on gender equality," she added.

Princess Basma reappointed as JOHUD chairperson

AMMAN (JT) — A Royal Decree was issued on Saturday reappointing HRH Princess Basma as chairperson of the Jordan Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD) board of trustees, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. The minister of social development and the chairman of the Arab Potash Company, were also appointed by Royal Decree as members of the board in its new term.
In addition, the following board members were also appointed: Walid Asfour, Mohammad Abu Hammour, Suhair Al Ali, Tayseer Smadi, Khalid Irani, Nidal Hadid, Farah Daghestani, Ghassan Nuqul, Marwan Jumaa, Reem Abu Hassan and Tarif Kamal.
Since the 1980s, JOHUD has built a network of more than 50 community development centres (CDCs) throughout Jordan.
The only network of its kind in the country, it works in partnership with local organisations, societies and councils.
The CDCs focus on a model of integrated development activities ranging from child development, family health and nutrition, education and awareness, and leadership skills for women, to income-generation and enterprise development.
Each centre plans its activities according to the needs and priorities of the community.
Local participants choose their own level and range of involvement, from social activities to improving their livelihoods.
A woman's first contact with a CDC may be different from that of her child or husband, but the aim is to widen each person's sphere of activities, opportunities and life choices, to promote the holistic growth and well-being of the individual.

Princess Basma receives delegation of visiting statesmen's wives

AMMAN (JT) — HRH Princess Basma on Monday received a delegation of visiting statesmen's wives, who listened to presentations by MAKANA participants on how the programme improved their personal and community lives. Among the delegates were Ingrid Carlsson, wife of former Swedish prime minister Ingvar Carlsson, Hasri Ainum Habibie, wife of former Indonesian president Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie and Marina Dianova, wife of former Latvian prime minister Valdis Birkavs.
At yesterday's meeting, held in the Queen Zein Al Sharaf Institute for Development (ZEINID), the Princess said Jordanian women assume an important role in their local societies.
She added that MAKANA came as a natural evolution of 30 years of hard work by women in their communities to make a difference in their livelihood.
MAKANA, which is implemented by the Jordan Hashemite Development Fund (JOHUD), has witnessed the mobilisation of over 60 women who have become leading social activists in their local communities.
The activists work closely with local service providers and municipal leaders in order to ensure that all people in their community are empowered to claim their rights and improve their living conditions.
The programme designers believe that barriers to development are more easily removed through collective action.
Currently the project is implemented in Jerash, Karak and Madaba and has already resulted in success stories that made a difference to so many lives.
A MAKANA activist from Jerash, Etidal Atiyat explained how the community members in the rural Merad area, for example, began to accept working women, underlining the role the programme played in this regard.
“We succeeded in addressing environmental, educational and medical issues in our communities,” Atiyat told the delegation.
For her part, Abla Hroot, an engineer from Madaba, pointed out that even her own way of thinking has changed since she joined MAKANA.
She said her approach towards the problems of her community transformed from criticism for the sake of criticism into a positive attitude based on networking with other activists from other parts of the country facing similar problems.
Meanwhile, Sakina Qarallah said she no longer tries to get things the easy way because it does not work all the time. When it comes to a woman's ambition to be elected as a member of a municipal council or the Lower House it needs a lot of effort, she said.
Speakers said they received support from their husbands and families to work in community service and be engaged in public life issues.
The two-year-old MAKANA is implemented with the help of Care International 2004.
Also on Monday, Princess Basma toured the Intel Computer Club at ZENID, where she looked at the graphic and digital arts produced by students.
JOHUD established the Intel Computer Clubhouse in July 2004 with the goal of enabling young people to acquire the tools necessary for personal and professional success. To date, the clubhouse's membership base consists of 300 persons.
The Fund is in the process of launching the second clubhouse at JOHUD's Community Development Centre in Mleih/Madaba, a village that has approximately 6,000 residents and located in an area where access to ICT is limited.
JOHUD officials believe that a clubhouse is more than just a safe environment for youth, but it is also a place where a “community of learners” — young people, mentors and staff — use technology as a tool for learning and creative expression.”

Princess Basma highlights importance of a safe school environment

AMMAN (JT) — HRH Princess Basma on Saturday said that without a safe school environment, no quality education would be achieved, adding that a safe environment is a prerequisite for the envisaged quality school of the future.
The Princess made the remarks as she opened the 15th Educational Conference for the Private Schools’ Cultural and Educational Council.
The three-day conference, which was coordinated with the Ministry of Education, is being held under the title “Safe Environment for a Quality School.”
Princess Basma, who is the honorary president of the council, said the conference’s theme and topics of deliberation embody “the quality leap we seek to achieve in the educational field.”
She added that the future school’s mission is not merely confined to teaching basic skills, rather it should harness modern technology and information media to serve the various aspects of the educational process, with focus on quality learning.
This is the best investment as far as Jordan is concerned, she told her audience. Quality learning, she continued, is “the effective tool that can help us cope with the knowledge and IT revolution in the new century.”
“Quality education is based on justice in rights and obligations in addition to safety, protection, mutual respect and equality among all,” she said.
The Princess said a safe environment requires the establishment of job security for teachers and other school staff members, and it should also provide students with all the modern means to acquire knowledge. This process, she said, should take place under educational supervision to ensure that learning is consistent with the teachings of religions and their values of tolerance.
In educational literature, she noted, safety is second in importance after food and clothing because it ensures peace of mind, a sound and continuous relationship with God and enhances the values of loyalty to the country.
The Princess also highlighted the need to focus on critical thinking, creative learning, innovation, a spirit of teamwork and leadership. The school is also required to build a sound relationship with the local community, she said.
During yesterday’s ceremony, the Princess presented plaques to Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Khalid Touqan and Minister of Political Development and Parliamentary Affairs Sabri Rbeihat, as well as to other conference participants. She also toured an art exhibition by students and other facilities on the sidelines of the conference.
Rbeihat delivered a lecture on the concept of safe school environment in education. The topic was also the focus of an address by Bassem Barakat, president of the council.
