Ahmad Freaj, 21 Amman

On the Road

Ahmad believes that people can use idle travel time more constructively. His initiative, On the Road, creates small libraries on city buses to help commuters take advantage of their time in transit. To date, Ahmad has carried out numerous successful book donation drives and informational campaigns. The campaigns encouraged tourists and other travelers to Aqaba to enjoy reading books on the buses. Ahmad's next step is to launch a campaign to target larger buses that travel from Karak to Amman and to partner with the Al Mutakamelah Company, which has buses that go from the Hashemite University area to the Jordanian University for Science and Technology.
