At Éminence, we’re committed to giving back to the community and to those in need through charitable contributions and support. From planting trees in developing countries through our Forests for the Future Initiative to providing organic fruits and vegetables to sick children through our Éminence Kids Foundation – we’re truly passionate about helping others and the planet.
As our business continues to grow on a global scale, we place even more emphasis on giving back to communities not only in North America but around the world. A recent international initiative that we were honored to support was an academic scholarship at the 8th annual LadiesFund® Women’s Awards 2016 in Pakistan. Founded in 2007, LadiesFund® is an initiative that promotes, trains and provides financial support to female entrepreneurs. It aims to integrate the entrepreneurial needs based on the economic and social aspects of the local communities, with respect to greater women participation in the workforce (www.ladiesfund.com).
In collaboration with our international partner, Cosmo Group, we were proud to sponsor a scholarship for a deserving female university student that has shown exceptional academic and entrepreneurial promise through her extracurricular and scholastic endeavors. This year’s Éminence Organics LadiesFund® Scholarship was chosen amongst 4 girls from Iqra University in Karachi, Pakistan and was awarded to Mariam Hashmi during the LadiesFund® Women’s Awards ceremony in Karachi. Through this scholarship, Mariam will now be able to complete her Bachelor of Education degree and pursue her dream of becoming a global leader in the world of business:
“Mariam Hashmi has held a belief since childhood that she could do something big in the world of business. This being her passion, she followed in the footsteps of role models who are globally-acclaimed leaders like Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Malala Yusufzai and Mother Teresa to name a few. Breaking gender stereotypes in the business world, Mariam is here to stay and make her own mark. And this is the reason she is our Éminence Organics LadiesFund Scholarship winner.”
