Nour joined Generations For Peace in October 2019 as a Programmes Coordinator. In this role, she supports the implementation of GFP’s Maharati (“My Skills”) Programme in Jordan by leading on the Programme’s logistical needs. She also guides and mentors Maharati’s lead Delegates and Pioneers on the Programme’s design, implementation, activity session designs, and monitoring and evaluation.
Originally from Jordan, Nour holds a Master’s degree in Contemporary Arab Studies with a focus in Development and Refugee Crisis Management from Georgetown University. She also received her Bachelor’s degree in Banking and Finance with a minor in Economics from the Lebanese American University (LAU).
Before joining GFP, Nour volunteered extensively in her community. As a result, she was awarded the “Rhoda Orme Award” in 2013 from LAU for her dedication and service to others. During her undergraduate career, she was also a part of the U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative’s (MEPI) “Tomorrow’s Leaders Programme,” which focused on promoting leadership skills and peacebuilding activities. It was this programme that sparked her interest in conflict resolution and mediation.
In her spare time Nour enjoys reading, swimming, volunteering, and studying Spanish.
