Children and women have been historically discriminated as far as access to resources is concerned. Despite the enactment of different affirmative actions to end this, they continue to suffer. Fortunately, the world is waking up to the reality that women and children are just as important as men. Malini Saba is one of the leading crusaders of the rights of women and children in the world. Her advocacy aims at bridging the gender and economic gap that exists between men and women, more so in the third world.
The Establishment of Stree
To realize her dreams, Saba established Stree. This is an organization that seeks to help discriminated kids and women in the developing world. Through hard work and dedication, Stree has managed to serve this segment of the population through the provision of healthcare services, safe housing, and educational opportunities. This goes a long way in guaranteeing a bright future. Saba’s definition of success is doing what one loves, and putting a smile on other people’s faces. This has been the guiding principle of her organization.
Malini concedes that the biggest challenge that faces her organization is dealing with successive governments in the developing world. Some governments have been skeptical as far as the organization’s activities has concerned. Nonetheless, she has been able to marshal her team in her push to attain global change. Her resolute nature has seen her push for positive change and policies that favor discriminated members of the society. Malini derives joy in seeing that women and children have access to education, clean water, and healthcare.
