and Expertise

We are an independent non-profit organisation committed to challenging critical global issues through the amplification of emerging local leaders. Founded by Dr. Alaa Murabit, Aziza Khabbush and Christina Myers, Omnis provides a platform for local leaders, with a particular focus on women and youth, offering leadership acceleration and mentorship opportunities to those with an interest in international peace and security, human rights and sustainable development.

At the Omnis Institute we focus on four areas of expertise, namely education, health, migration and security, with gender equality at the core of our mission. Working closely on the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), we focus on illustrating the importance of local leadership and collaboration, and recognise that the fulfilment of the Global Goals is only possible when local social entrepreneurs, local businesses and international organisations work together. We strongly believe that a crosscutting, multilateral approach with young local leaders at the forefront, and engaged with global actors and businesses is the most effective solution to address today’s major global challenges.

At the Omnis Institute we focus on four areas of expertise, namely education, health, migration and security, and put gender equality at the core of our mission.


When people are able to get quality education they can break away from the cycle of poverty. Education reduces inequalities and is key to ensuring gender equality. In fact, when a girl is education she marries later, has less children and is less likely to contract HIV/AIDS. When 10% of the girls in a country are educated, it leads to a 2-3% growth in the national GDP. Education empowers people everywhere to live more healthy and sustainable lives and it is crucial to fostering tolerance between people, ultimately contributing to more peaceful societies.

Omnis Institute aims at providing quality education through leadership opportunities to amplify the contributions of women and young leaders to global peace and security.





Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being for all is essential to sustainable development. Significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality and major progress has been made on increasing access to clean water and sanitation, reducing malaria, tuberculosis, polio and the spread of HIV/AIDS. However, many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues.


When supported by appropriate policies, migration contributes to inclusive and sustainable economic growth and development in both home and host communities. In spite of the many benefits of migration, migrants themselves remain among the most vulnerable members of society. International cooperation is critical to ensure safe, orderly and regular migration involving full respect for human rights and the humane treatment of migrants and refugees.





Women and children are disproportionately affected in conflict and post-conflict regions. Security policies need to be more inclusive and include women at the decision-making table in order to contribute to global peace and security. Inclusive policies and women’s inclusion in decision-making lead to more sustainable solutions that are more likely to succeed and create long-term impact.


About the SDGS

On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit — officially came into force.  Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.


The SDGs, also known as Global Goals, build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and aim to go further to end all forms of poverty. The new Goals are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
