Wafaa introduced our corporation to new social initiatives and guided us with her passion and professionalism.
“We are a private enterprise that specializes in organizing events and developing platforms dedicated to food, hospitality and tourism. For the last fourteen years, we have been working to support small social enterprises in rural areas – mostly led by women and youth – to connect them to the hospitality, travel and tourism industry supply chain. This was largely made possible through projects led by Wafaa who introduces us to new initiatives and guided us with her passion and professionalism.”
