Malini Saba, founder of Stree, is a successful international entrepreneur who makes it her job to help at risk women and children all over the globe. She started Stree: Global Investments in Women to help women and children who are often underprivileged. Malini Saba uses her success and fortune to make an international impact.
Saba believes that women and children are the future and must be cared for accordingly. Alongside Stree, she helps them by providing healthcare, safe places to live, and educational opportunities to help make sure their futures are a little brighter.
Malini Saba has a different view of success. She doesn’t view it in monetary value, but in being able to do what she loves every day. She believes that happiness and doing what you love is the true success. With Stree, she gets to do what she loves each and every day.
Stree has had to deal with governments in those developing countries in major ways in order to make true changes. She and Stree have stood their ground and continued to push for necessary changes. Saba always remembers that she is not just making a change for an individual, but an entire community. That drive ensures that the people she helps get the changes in their communities that they need.
Malini Saba is completely self-made. Her success is due to her continuous passion for everything she does. She grew up in Australia and moved to the U.S. when she was 19. Her and her then husband lived closed by to Stanford University. As a spouse of a student, Saba could attend lectures at the nearby university for free. That was where she became passionate about investment and business.
After crashing meetings and talking to many investment bankers, Malini Saba began investing her long-saved money into different industries like commodities, real estate, and telecommunications. Now, Saba is one of the top investors and philanthropists in the world.
In 2001, she founded Stree: Global Investments in Women. This non-profit organization has the goal of changing the views low income women and children have on themselves and their future roles in society. Stree helps provide means for grassroots movements to connect with public policy, in addition to many other services, in Central America, India, Eastern Europe, and Africa.
