An evening with Noora Sharrab!

We are so excited to sit down with social entrepreneur and women’s advocate Noora Sharrab.
While still in university, Noora moved to the Jerash ‘Gaza’ Refugee camp in Jordan to write her thesis and experience the culture firsthand. Her life was completely transformed. She forged a lifelong bond with the women of the camp and this inspired an all-encompassing passion to provide opportunities for refugee girls and women through education, employment and entrepreneurship. It was in Jerash that Sitti Soap, which she established with Jacqueline Sofia, and Hopes for Women in Education were born.

We can’t wait to see you there!

A global citizen, Noora was born in Dubai, raised in Canada and has lived all over the world. She is tenacious, forward-thinking and compassionate: Noora witnessed inequity, injustice and poverty and identified how she could uniquely take action – all before she turned 30!

Noora will talk to us about how she and Jacqueline Sofia created Sitti Soap and grew it into a successful, internationally acclaimed social enterprise – and she’ll tell us about the women and artisans at the refugee camp who make it all happen. She will also share what drove her to leave Canada at such a young age and connect with women on the other side of the world. We will also discuss the impact and power we have as consumers and the importance of conscious consumption – especially relevant during the upcoming holiday season!
