More than just your average café, the soon to open Four Brave Women is run by refugee women. Every couple of weeks, a different team will take over the kitchen to prepare and cook food from their culture. The café is an initiative of the Trading Circle, a non-profit organisation that aims to empower women in developing countries to lift themselves out of poverty. The goal is to be able to provide opportunities for refugees to improve their skills and to learn more about running their own business. At the same time, it’s also an opportunity for the locals to get to know the refugees and to learn more about their culture.
For their first set of menus, Ethiopian-inspired breakfast and coffee will be served Mondays to Fridays from 6:30 am to 9:30 am. For lunch and dinner, the café will serve a Persian buffet on Tuesdays to Sundays from 11 am to 2 pm and 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm respectively.
Watch out for their grand opening on the evening of the 6th of April, Friday.
Located at 26 Lackey Street, Four Brave Women and The Trading Circle is just a couple of blocks away from the Flour Mill. Follow them on Facebook and on Instagram or check out their website to learn more about the organisation.
