Working with UN Women in Jordan to better understand and address the needs of Syrian female refugees in the Za’atari camp, Rana developed advocacy tools on issues of women’s economic empowerment, leadership, and access to resources.

By spending time communicating with stakeholders, Rana cultivated support for Za’atari refugee camp and the host communities. In parallel, Rana rolled out her program WISE in the camp. WISE is a self-defense, leadership and entrepreneurship organization to support Muslim women living in the west. The goal of the program is to provide Muslim women with the skills they need in order to confront and challenge violence that they face in their lifetimes.
