Let’s welcome on Women Fitness, the woman who represents the strength of women empowerment and education in the present society, Hanna Jaff.
As the founder of a non-profit organization, The Jaff Foundation for Education, you seem to have deep passion to work for the underprivileged. Where do you think this desire to work for the betterment of the younger generation originate within you? Share an experience that will always remain in your heart?
My non-profit helps with refugees, immigrants, and the less fortunate by donating self-taught English learning books and campaigning against discrimination. It’s my two sides, my father always helped with refugees, and my mother with immigrants. This is why my charity does what it does, immigrants are the love for my mother and refugees are the love for my father. I grew up around that, and I’m very passionate about it. When I was a teenager, an experience I will always remember is the first time I saw the aftermaths of a war zone and felt impotent. Wanting to do so much and couldn’t. I felt angry, sad, and hopeless. I saw, heard, and felt the stories behind every refugee. I remember telling my father that day that I wanted to devote my life to humanitarian work.
