AFGHAN REFUGEE WOMEN
A catering and take-away service by a group of seven Afghani refugee women, ILHAM (which means positivity in Dari language) was launched in September 2015 with the support of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
We wish to. Have big houses and all the comforts. We came to India to give a better life to our children.
Since November 2015, we have received orders from the US Embassy, UNHCR, and ACCESS and have participated in different exhibitions at Dastkar. Our most popular dishes include manthu, ashak, chapali kebabs, quormi-emurgh, borani banjan, kabuli pulao, khajurs, and baklava.
For us, freedom means being able to walk without covering our faces. We recently got threatening calls from our family back home when they saw us on YouTube.
If we are completely free. We’ll just enjoy the gift of life.
