“ANA HUNNA” – أنا هنا – I am here – Je suis là – Ich bin hier
ANA HUNNA is a call to all women to be active, powerful and self-determined. ANA HUNNA is a call to all women and men to realize the potential of 50 % of the population which is here to be seen, contribute and ready to engage.
Currently, women in Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia have the lowest participation rate in the labour market worldwide with just 25%. Besides its individual meaning for each woman, women’s integration is essential for a successful and thriving economy and an inclusive society.
Our vision is a world where women have the choice on how to be active in society.
Thus, the ANA HUNNA International Network forms a primary hub for circulating the experiences, ideas, innovative concepts and experiences of its members and partners and hundreds of initiatives of practical work in each country of the network. The network is offering space to jointly create even more new initiatives and strengthen existing activities.

How we work
Under the brand ANA HUNNA has been working for years in countries of the North African region with people of different ages and in different contexts on issues of gender equality.
What does this mean in concrete terms?
The ANA HUNNA films ensure an entry into the topic with people of any age, gender and educational level. The ANA HUNNA materials are instructions for the in-depth work on the relevant issues of the respective context: e.g. How can women get better into the job market? What is important for executives when more women are to be integrated into their department? How can teachers work on gender equality with school children in an appropriate and interesting way?
There are elaborated plans for the workshops, which can be found in the Educational Kit. They are based on the same basic structure (structure of the workshop.
– Preparatory exercises (Unpacking Gender)
– ANA HUNNA film screening (by prior selection, according to the target group)
– Creative exercises on the topic
The workshop ends with final exercises and a brief evaluation in the group.
