An article posted on ideamensh.com features businessperson and philanthropist Malini Saba. The article begins by highlighting some of Saba’s generous philanthropic contributions. For example, in 2001 Saba created the nonprofit organization “Stree,” which helps low-income and at-risk women and children worldwide to access health care and legal aid. In addition, “Stree” also provides grassroots organizations a way to connect with public policy. The article goes on to note that in 2005 Saba also donated $1 million dollars to start the first Heart Research Center for South Asians at El Camino Hospital in California, and in 2004, she pledged $10 million dollars to Tsunami victims in India and Sri Lanka after touring the damaged areas. The article then goes on to discuss Saba’s business background and her work as a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. The article ends with a short interview with Malini Saba that sheds light on her dynamic personality and her deeply held values.
She has been quite successful, and owned her own venture capitalist company. Ms. Saba is chairman of the board of Saban, which is an investment company that has worldwide interests in oil, gas, and real estate.
Even with all of the business success and philanthropic endeavors, Ms. Saban believes in putting family first. Her family is an important part of her life and she makes sure to include her daughter in her activities whenever possible. Additionally, Ms. Saba makes time in her business schedule to both take her daughter to school and to pick her up at the end of the day. She wants to spend as much time as she can with her daughter and not pass that job along to anyone else.
