Meet Sahra!



Today we want to introduce you to Sahra, a 29 year old woman from South Sudan, who despite juggling with different responsibilities and difficulties, finds the strength and passion to give back to society. She wants to empower women in self-reliance, teaching them financial accountability and management skills, in order to help them understand how to run a business, save money, and deal with finances efficiently. On a larger scale, she hopes to play an active role in ending the corruption that’s occurring in her country’s public sector, by setting up methodologies for managing resources based on evidence.


Thanks to your generosity, Sahra is able to continue her studies, and get closer to achieving a bachelor degree in Accounting and Finance, at Cavendish University. If you want to know more about her, you can access her full story on our blog!

Meet Noura!

Greetings from the Asherah Foundation!

Today we want to introduce you to Noura, a 37-year-old woman from Yemen, who is currently studying in Malaysia. Regardless of the socio-political difficulties faced by Yemeni people, Noura has strongly believed that her efforts could bring a change to her community. Through constant volunteering and mentorship programs for organizations such as the Blind Women Association, UNICEF, and the National Cultural Center for Youth, she has dedicated her time to teaching children and raising awareness to the difficulties faced by vulnerable groups of people.

Thanks to your generosity, Noura is able to continue her research in Human Development and Techno Communication at the Universiti Malaysia Perlis, where she is pursuing her master degree. If you want to know more about Noura, you can access her full story on our blog!

Meet Thalia!

Greetings from the Asherah Foundation!

Do you remember Thalia, Sahra, and Noura? Not too long ago you generously donated money for their education. We are now happy to tell you that thanks to your support, our fundraiser successfully graduated the Global Giving Accelerator, raising $5,489 and counting. This gives us the opportunity to keep the campaign active for as long as we want to, offering us the chance to help many more women.

Today I plan to talk to you about Thalia, a 29 year old woman from Burundi, who knows that giving up is not an option. Thalia has had a tumultuous life, fighting with poverty ever since the civil war between the Hutsus and the Tutsi broke out in Burundi in 1993. The war exemplified a tremendous material loss and scarcity of opportunities, but also a massive emotional disruption, claiming more than 300,000 innocent lives. Thalia too, experienced severe loss: the war didn’t only take her father and relatives, but also her right leg.

Nevertheless, despite all the obstacles life decided to throw at her, she has fought fiercely for her future. She is now studying Business Administration at the International University of Equator, and with the help of the Asherah Foundation’s scholarship she will be able to continue her studies. You can read her full story here!
