through JAAGO Foundation
In September of 2019, Nabela traveled to Bangladesh with her husband Seth and her family. Her hope was to introduce Seth to her country, her culture and the beautiful people of Bangladesh. Together they traveled to various cities, villages and tourist attractions, but the most memorable experience was a trip to a JAAGO school in Banani, Dhaka.
JAAGO Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Bangladesh committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by providing free access to education and resources to underprivileged and impoverished
When Nabela and Seth entered the school, they just knew they were led to JAAGO for a reason. They immediately fell in love with the students as they gave them a tour and even welcomed them to sit in on their Science Fair. They were lucky enough to get to know the students dreams and aspirations and knew they wanted to be a part of helping their dreams come true.
And thus, Noor House was born.
In collaboration with JAAGO Foundation, the Noor House Scholarship program focuses on the sponsorship and commitment to girls education at the Banani Branch in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Currently, 20 girls ages 5-7 are enrolled in the Noor House Scholarship Program and receive free education and resources as well as vital tools for their growth and development into the strong, trailblazing leaders they are destined to be.
As a self-love advocate, Nabela continues her powerful work beyond her own platform and Noor House through her self-love brand and community, Zeba. Named in honor of her mother, Zeba who taught Nabela all that she knows about beauty, Zeba strives to redefine beauty standards to be inclusive, not exclusive.
To aide all people in celebrating their bodies, Zeba created it's own sizing system. A sizing standard that transforms the traditional size chart with a new standard, where size-focused labels are replaced with words of affirmation.
With each Zeba purchase, a portion of proceeds go directly to JAAGO Foundation which benefits both the children of their school and the children of Noor House. Click on your favorite product above or visit wearezeba.co to shop.
