Enas Fares Ghannam

We Are Not Numbers director, Enas Ghannam

Chosen as WANN project manager in November 2021, Enas earned a bachelor’s degree in English education from Al-Azhar University and a diploma in translation from the Islamic University of Gaza. She is now WANN’s director and is currently close to completing a master’s degree in translation.

Enas is passionate about improving the lives of youth, especially in Gaza. She hopes to help others discover what she did when she first joined WANN — that she has many unknown abilities that can be cultivated and nurtured.

Enas says, “Because of WANN, I discovered my ability to write creatively, both fiction and nonfiction. In addition, WANN allowed me to get to know more about and analyze the world around me. It was my first step toward developing a better version of me.”

Walla Sabbah

We Are Not Numbers project manager, Walla Sabbah

Walaa is the community outreach and partnership officer at WANN. She has travelled to more than ten countries, and has done voluntary work in Africa, worked in Europe, taught children from East Asia and studied in the Middle East.

She finished her Bachelor’s degree in English arts and literature at the Islamic University of Gaza and the University of Warsaw. She also completed a one-year diploma in education.

Walaa is a self-driven, devoted tri-lingual with more than five years of expertise in sales and marketing, outreach and partnerships, global distribution systems, project management, customer service, translation studies and strategic management.

She made it into the aviation industry, her childhood dream, and worked for Five Stars Airlines. She is a strong advocate of human rights and democratic, free societies, which motivated her to join WAAN.
