Amman, Jordan – April 2020: MASE has committed funds to support the Faz3et Shabab initiative, a makeshift grassroots campaign that emerged spontaneously in response to the COVID-19 crisis facing Jordan today. The initiative aims to mobilize individuals and the private sector to support the country at this time of crisis.
The funding is committed by MASE as part of its Advancing Solar Initiative on behalf of its employees and team members, who continue to work on the front lines to ensure that the power plants which we manage are operating with peak performance and availability, generating clean and efficient power to national grids across regions in which we operate.
“We decided to commit funding to the Faz3et Shabab initiative because they proposed a transparent platform which enabled us to understand where our money was spent. The team behind Faz3et Shabab also proposed uncustomary ideas which aligned with the core values of our Advancing Solar Initiative”, said Tareq Khalifeh, MASE’s Managing Director.
