Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

“Comprehensive development is a pillar of our economic future. It is essential to the success of every business here. The more effectively we work together, the faster we can change lives, build stability and create the future our people deserve. It is a moral responsibility, it is a human responsibility, and it is a business responsibility as well.”

HM King Abdullah II

Public Private Partnership to Enhance Social Development in Jordan
Vital Voices

As consultants and advisors to Vital Voices Global Partnership, Mahara ’s responsibility included project development and implementation, to ensure the project meets its objectives, engages the private sector and enhances its role in the economic and social development in Jordan.

The project started with a symposium that invited members from the private and public sectors to engage in open dialogue approaching Corporate Social Responsibility. As a result, 'Jordanian Forum for Public and Private Partnership' was formed. This forum is a regular meeting of 50 members from both sectors over a period of six months for exchange and mutual learning creating sustainable partnerships. Mahara created the 'seeing is believing' approach whereby the 50 members would visit locations in the community to get the sense of what is needed on the ground.

Capitalising on the level of awareness that has been created in Jordan on the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility and move to the practical level of implementation of CSR, Mahara was the pioneer in organizing a specialized training workshop in Jordan on CSR and sustainability reporting in collaboration with The Accountability Project (TAP).

TAP is an internationally recognized and accredited program that helps build trust with stakeholders, drive improvements in organizational performance, and earn respect for leaders in CSR and sustainable development.
