In April 2014, I had a dream: to create a scholarship foundation to provide scholarships to bright young women from the developing to help them break the cycle of poverty and become tomorrow's leaders. But I had no funds, students, university collaborations, on-ground partners, board or charitable status. Just a dream.
Today, we support 40 young women (including four alumni), often from areas of turmoil. Countries include Argentina (alum.); Kyrgyz Republic, Lebanon (refugee camps), Liberia, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, Syria, Tajikistan and Uganda. The scholars attend programs at the Bachelor, Masters’, Professional and PhD levels.
