Sana’a AlBanawi

programmes Coordinator

Sanaa joined Generations For Peace in November 2019 as a Programmes Coordinator for the JONAP Programme. Her main role is to ensure that the main concepts of JONAP and gender perspectives are reflected in the curriculum in a way that meets the overall objective of the programme.

Before joining Generations For Peace, Sanaa worked with many different NGOs, her favourite being Intel Computer Club House where she used resources such as photography, theater, and music to make a difference in local communities. In addition, she has worked as a Gender Focal Point for the Middle East and North Africa at the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict since 2017, helping to include the gender perspective in different projects.

Originally from Jordan, Sanaa graduated from the University of Jordan with a Bachelor’s Degree in Italian and English Languages. She is currently pursuing her Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Human Development at the University of Jordan as well.

Sanaa is proud of her work to draft, launch, and implement JONAP, and of becoming a gender focal point for the project at age 24. Outside of her work, she enjoys acting in theatrical plays, singing, photography, and reading.
