Shiraz Herzallah, 20

Atuna Fursah, Amman

Shiraz has created Atuna Fursah to support a wide range of people living in Amman - including the elderly, refugees, those with special needs, cancer patients and others - who want to give back to their community but are unable to, due to their situations.

The initiative integrates these groups by visiting them and empowering them through economic projects.

Thus far, the initiative has brought in volunteers to help groups craft rosary beads, necklaces, bracelets, embroidered picture frames, carpets, hand-drawn world maps, and works of art using an array of media.

Shiraz aims to make the initiative self-sustainable and expand its sale and distribution of items.
