Unbelievable Woman Created a Catering Company to Help Employ Palestinian Refugee Women
Burj el Burajneh, Lebanon's Women's Program Association leader Mariam Shaar wants to buy a food truck—not just for profit, but to support the Palestinian refugee women she works with. It all started in 2013, when Shaar asked Alfanar—the Arab region's first venture philanthropy organization—to provide her with funds for a catering unit.
She explained that this venture would help the WPA generate its own income and build the women's confidence, all while allowing them to market tasty Palestinian food that reminds them of home. Alfanar decided to take a chance on this dedicated woman. They gave her start-up funds to form the Soufra (which means "feast" in Arabic) catering unit and offered her valuable business advice.
