Egypt, board member of ANA HUNNA International Network e.V.

“Women’s economic empowerment is my biggest passion. That is why I wanted to be part of the ANA HUNNA International Network e.V. the moment I learned about it. Our cultural norms and societal framework still don’t encourage women to work. We need a comprehensive approach, in order to sustainably ensure equality in the workforce and to support women to participate economically in our society, to whatever extent they deem fit for themselves. By 2020 I want ANA HUNNA to be known as the leading and most influential women’s economic empowerment network in the Middle East and Europe.”

Vivian Thabet is a board member of the International Development Support & Consulting (IDSC) in Cairo.
