Manager of the first round of the “Arab Reading Challenge” initiative
As a member of the “Arab Reading Challenge” initiative’s team, one of the initiatives launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and aimed at encouraging reading among school children, Muna contributed to setting the standards of evaluation which were followed by nomination and judging committees in order to select the winning schools and students.
Muna was also involved in the “Reading Nation” campaign which targeted enriching the index of available books at over 3000 school and public libraries across the Arab world. Backed by the Public Diplomacy Office, an affiliate office to the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs, Muna worked on bolstering cooperation between local publishing companies and the public sector for the higher purpose of encouraging a culture of reading. This unprecedented cooperation generated 25 million Dirhams which were used to supply and distribute publications to libraries.
Muna started working for the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs back in 2008 and is currently the Director of Events at the Public Diplomacy Office.
