Hello, Assalaam Alaikum. peace and blessings everyone!
My name is Sabeena.
I'm a fairtrade campaigner, educator and social entrepreneur.
Here is my #HerStoryMakesHistory message for World Pulse on International Women's Day 2021!
I support fairtrade because I believe in the the 10 Principles of Fair Trade.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the fairtrade women powerhouses of the world who have supported my work over the past 12 years.
Thank you for supporting me in 2008 when I first wrote to you about starting a Fair Trade movement in the UAE. #MonaElSayed @fairtradeegypt
Thank you Roopa Mehta (Apa) @sasha_fairtrade and President of the World Fair Trade Organization for visiting me in Dxb and telling me to keep my head down and work hard!
Thank you to the Founder of Selyn Fairtrade, Sri Lanka Mrs Sandra Wanduragala @selynfairtrade for your passion for organic cotton and education.
Thank you Wafa and the ladies from the #NajmaAlSubah Cooperative @FairTradeLeb for your warmth and hospitality during my visit to Lebanon 2016.
Love and respect for the one and only CEO and Founder of Tara Projects Dehli, India.
Ms Moon Sharma (Apa) for your time and kindness. Hope to see you again very soon insha'Allah!
No International Women's Day would be complete without a mention for my late mother and grandmother. My Paradise!
No words to express the endless love and prayers for my beloved mother Mrs Meshar Mumtaz Bano and late grandmother Shamsun Nisa
Miss you both so much!
Love, peace and blessings to all the World Pulse team, World Pulse sisters, fairtrade producers and artisans on International Women's Day 21!
