Baird Visits Jordanian Women’s Cooperative

March 30, 2013 - Wadi Rum, Jordan - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird meets with members of Al Disseh Women Cooperative (DWC) and with members of the local community.

The cooperative empowers women and helps them participate more fully in their communities, making them more successful and more prosperous. It was established in 2011 with Canadian development assistance as Canada views the full participation of women and girls as a key foreign policy concern.

Canada supports projects in Jordan that help create jobs, hope and opportunity by improving access to education and training programs, especially for women.
