World One Country is inspired by our founder’s roots in Pakistan. Growing up in a country of marvelous beauty and immense talent but lack of education, Anila Hussain felt inspired but also heartbroken at how this talent was stunted by a lack of opportunities and access to quality education.
From a very young age, having strong roots in the east, she was well aware of the challenges that a girl comes across in her life in traditional societies. She has strived from the very beginning to be a trendsetter and not a trend follower.
In 2018, she has been recognized as a Laureate amongst 100 students, in the Centenary of the Mama Parsi Girls’ Secondary School from 1918 to 2018.
Being a national level gymnast, her sportswoman spirit of achieving her dreams and zest for knowledge led her to become a Pan American, AMI Montessori Educator, and Co-founder of a sustainable, international Fashion brand, SHENANNZ with her sister . She is settled in Switzerland for over 18 years with her supportive husband, three children, and in-laws.
Armed with her sensitivity, enterprise, and values, she serves as a Global Goodwill Ambassador for Pakistan and Switzerland since March 2018.
Anila is committed to using her Montessori education and free-thought to help empower children, youth, men, and women around her and committed to emancipation and empowerment of impoverished women, by fostering their creativity to create sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their families. Her dream is to spread the message of gender equality through entrepreneurship and education, across the world.
