In order to sustain themselves economically, many refugees opened up their own food venture, attempting to recreate traditional culinary from home. In the process, they have also created a demand for their cuisine in Delhi and the enterprise enabled them to make friends and adapt to the host country and overcome their emotional burdens. “When I came to Delhi, I found work in a restaurant, but that shut down. Earlier, I would suffer from headaches, but ever since I joined ILHAM, those stopped. Am happy now.

The group has led to a lot of changes in my life,” says Khadija, a 27-year old Afghan refugee who works with ILHAM, a food enterprise led by Afghan refugee women.
