Giving Back

Hanan created Giving Back to preserve the environment and economically empower low-income women. Through her initiative, she advocates for the reduction of pollution, raises awareness about recycling, and helps housewives and unemployed women earn an income by 'upcycling' items into decorative household products. Hanan carried out a successful environmental awareness campaign in Al Mare'a Village and held an exhibition that featured upcycled products made by her beneficiaries. She next hopes to partner with associations and companies to help manufacture and market the project's products.
