As Programmes Officer, Aya’s role includes supporting the implementation of programmes in assigned countries including the US and those in MENA and Europe; mentoring the lead volunteers in programme design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation; and establishing and nurturing effective partnerships with local partner organisations.
Aya is from Jordan and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Jordan.
Over the years, Aya has been exposed to a range of roles at leadership development organisations in Jordan, all of which have solidified her interest in community work. Aya also had the opportunity to join the international student-run organisation, AIESEC, where she gained valuable experience in solving real-life issues facing local students. The results of her studies were presented at Youth Leadership Forums inaugurated by HRH Princess Sumaya of Jordan.
Aya’s previous experience with the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Jordan 2016 Local Organising Committee, gave her the push she needed to apply for a position at Generations For Peace. She looks forward to working towards the organisation’s vision and furthering her own personal development within the Programmes Department.
In her spare time, Aya loves travelling and painting. A keen musician, she also enjoys singing and playing the piano
