With a background in video and animation production Haneen Abassi was eager to join the world of work and begin her professional journey towards economic independence. However, employment opportunities are hard to come by for Palestinians in Jerusalem and Haneen was soon faced with the reality of prolonged unemployment.

Since joining, Haneen gained access to a team of highly-skilled professionals that trained her in business and financial management, specialized skills development in photography and graphic design among other.
