How we do it?



Societal and humanitarian cases of those in need are uploaded to Tadamon’s portal by Community Contributors who then undertake a verification check of the unverified cases.


Once the case has been verified, it is presented on Tadamon’s platform, including the mobile app and website.

Accept Donations

Once live on Tadamon’s platform, we accept donations from Jordanian citizens in Jordan via a few clicks on their smartphone.

The exit of Souq to Amazon in 2017 was one of the largest tech transactions of the region. Souq was built from the ground up by the same team at Jabbar, who built the Maktoob portal before that. Maktoob was born out of a simple idea but with a vision that the Arabic Internet will grow and become an integral part of everybody's life, and grew to become the largest Arabic Internet property before Yahoo acquired it in 2009.


Both the Souq and Maktoob stories have become inspiring success stories in the region, where budding entrepreneurs and VC's alike, look to Jabbar's team for inspiration and new ideas. Today Jabbar continues to grow and pave the way for tech in the region. It is in this spirit that Jabbar embraces any entrepreneur who is willing to innovate and take risks in order to create something great. Jabbar nurtures such individuals and supports nascent ideas that are in line with its mission.
