I specifically wanted to obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for effective project management and leadership. My organization, continues to face many challenges that hinder efficient and effective delivery of essential services because of poor coordination, lack of funds, and inadequate technical and professional personnel training. UNITAR’s training...gave me the confidence necessary to fully understand the needs of my country.

I am passionate about architecture because I believe buildings tell a story. This experience pushed me to the limit - that is when I started channelling my ideas into a concrete project. I developed a project called Preserve-Ha (“ha” is Arabic for “it”). The idea grew from the needs assessment that I undertook…and I incorporated my new skills and design the project.
