In addition to her work at WaterAid, Prabasi and her husband Elias Gurmu co-founded Buunni Coffee in 2011, and opened Café Buunni in 2012, NYC’s first Ethiopian coffee shop, located in Washington Heights. The growing company blends Prabasi’s strong social sector experience with Gurmu’s entrepreneurial track record and is launching its second New York City location this year.
Prabasi was also recently named by both Fortune and Food & Wine magazines as one of the ‘Most Innovative Women in Food & Drink’. She was recognized, in part, because of her reputation as a trailblazer and mentor for women interested in pursuing top leadership positions while also balancing busy family lives. A proud mother of two young girls, Sarina has been praised for providing exceptional support and encouragement to the nearly 25% of WaterAid staff in the US who similarly have young children at home.
“Sarina’s excellence in the nonprofit sphere is matched only by her unparalleled understanding of how businesses and nonprofits can form a powerful force for good in New York City—and far beyond,” said Dan Singer, North America President for EMU Australia.
“EMU is proud to have teamed up with WaterAid to achieve a world where everyone, everywhere has clean water, toilets and hygiene, and we congratulate Sarina on being recognized among so many other influential New York leaders.”
