Welcome to I AM S.A.R.A.H.
Sarah is an acronym for structured, authentic, radiant, aware and honorable. The name also comes from the biblical character " Sarah." The main point in the story that we as women identify with is feeling barren, not able to produce. For whatever reason, low self esteem, separation, divorce, single parenting, domestic or emotional abuse, we feel barren. Sarah was dissatisfied, impatient, doubtful, but most of all afraid , struggling in her faith. Sarah's promise came with her name. Sarah means princess, a woman of high rank, the root idea means to rule. Sarah had to realize her destiny could come through her.
The mission of I AM S.A.R.A.H. is to impact and inspire all women to equip themselves with the life tools for growth and success. We envision a community of women who empower each other through personal, economic, and professional development. The Board of Directors of I AM S.A.R.A.H. believe that the crisis we face as a nation is a direct result of lack in three areas: personal, economic, and professional development.
