Narmin’s passion lies in empowering young women from the developing world through education, which led her to establish The Spark of Hope Foundation in 2014. The Foundation provides needs-based scholarships to bright young women with strong leadership potential, so that these women can make a huge impact in their communities as tomorrow’s leaders. Her goal is to increase awareness about the need to fund education at the post-secondary level for marginalized young women internationally, create a long term sustainable funding platform to support the Foundation’s ambitious growth plans, and dramatically increase the number of students in the programs that the Foundation offers.
