Alumna, Education For Employment (EFE)

Nisreen Mitwally is a 23 year old Palestinian from Jerusalem. She graduated from Birzeit University in 2013 with a major in Nutrition Dietetics and a minor in Business Administration. After struggling to find a job for over five months, she enrolled in Palestine Education For Employment’s job training and placement program, and today is an Administrative Assistant at Eithar Insurance Company. She studies Hebrew to increase her professional opportunities and is extensively involved in community development. Each week, Mitwally visits retirement homes to provide nutrition advice to the elderly and their caregivers. In addition, Mitwally volunteers with groups that undertake school clean-ups, organize used clothing drives for families in need, and coordinate fast-breaking meals and celebrations for underprivileged children during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting. Mitwally hopes to one day host a health-related television show and found a community center for youth in Jerusalem.
