Building Positive Change: One Life, One Young Woman at a time


A Letter from Verlaine

Why Zahara's Dream?

Young Women Empowerment starts with Opportunity, a Role Model, Confidence and a Power Jacket!

Welcome to Zahara's Dream

Like millions of young women before me, I struggled to find my voice.

I struggled to find my place in society, to find my pace and rhythm. I could not see the path, my path.

I felt lost. I was lost. Until I found myself back. Until I found and nurtured my voice.

I came to understand that finding one’s path and voice starts within. It starts with the tools we are offered, the moments (good and bad)

we experience, the lessons we learn and nurture.


Young Women have the power to smile and to carry on through the storms of challenges.But we do not have to be alone. We can come together in solidarity.


On 8th March 2020, I launched Zahara's Dream. Inspired by my experience and the dreams shared with sisters around the world, Zahara's Dream focuses on programs and initiatives that invest in the success and empowerment of young women through solidarity and innovation by providing:


1. Access to Opportunities #PowerForward

2. Mentoring of Role Models #Sisterskeepers

3. Confidence Building #BeYouPowerfully

4. Access to professional attire support #PowerJacket

Zahara's Dream is about finding yourself. A commitment to believe in yourself and to rally around sisters looking for themselves.

Zahara’s Dream is also the commitment of owning who we are and honoring our beings, our voices and our dreams.

Zahara’s Dream is a movement of women supporting each other, putting radical love and generosity at the center of our efforts.

Zahara’s Dream is about becoming, together.

Always Be You, Powerfully,

Voices of Positive Change Lead

I spent most of my formative years in a small town in India surrounded by women who were never acknowledged for their strength and perseverance. It made me realize early on that as a woman, my journey won't be easy and that I'll have to fight harder."
