Dalia has linked up with Emerging Hope Lanka founder Nilushika Silva Jayaweera to help women in Sri Lanka open their microbusinesses. Dalia runs several fundraising events a year to help finance the 55 live projects, enabling not only the women impacted, but also their children and entire family to come out of poverty and into hope.
TOM is a global network of communities creating solutions for people with disabilities. Their vision is a world in which technology and innovation allow every person access to affordable solutions for their needs. For the first TOM MakeAThon in Singapore in 2019, Dalia lead a team (6 leadership members, 100 volunteers) to create this event. She worked with universities, the disabled community and the makers community on fundraising while partnering with key companies (eg Google and HP confirmed partners) for a successful event.
Dalia volunteered at this NGO helping children in the Myanmar Rohingya refugee camp in Malaysia, as well as under privileged schools in Nepal and Israel.

The day was April 27 and they found out it was my daughter’s birthday. So they made this incredible video for her.
