Celebrate Best Buddies Jordan
Best Buddies Jordan was founded in 2007 under the umbrella of the organization, Family and Friends of Persons with Disabilities. Volunteer, Zuhair, shares about his friendship with his Buddy, Sanad.
Sanad and I are Best Buddies from Jordan and both attend the Amman National School. Before Best Buddies was established at our high school, we had seen each other in the hallways but hadn’t really met or spoken. This all changed once we were matched. We instantly became great friends. We spend most of our time together playing our favorite sport, football. We had the opportunity to work together on a school project and won an award for our Design and Technology submission, a proud moment for both of us.
I have learned so much from Sanad; he taught me to be patient and work harder to achieve my goals. I never thought that our friendship would have such a great impact on my life and I thank him for that. It also makes me proud to know that I have had an impact on Sanad as well. He tells me that he has become a better football player with my help. We are like brothers and best friends and most importantly, Buddies for life!
