Aanaab Showcase


In this Showcase, we focus on the work of Aanaab, and explore how Aanaab’s teacher professional development is positively impacting teachers and how they see this impact affecting their students. We aim to highlight the critical work being undertaken by Aanaab to address the challenge of the professional development gap for teachers, especially in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East and North African (MENA) region.
