Soufra follows the inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burl El Barajneh refugee camp south of Beirut, Lebanon. The film follows Mariam and a diverse team of fellow refugee women as they set out to change their fate by launching a catering company, “Soufra,” and then expand its reach outside the camp with a food truck business.
Following the film screening will be a moderated discussion with Jennifer Holt, CEO of Building Markets and Emily Arnold-Fernandez, Executive Director of Asylum Access on how to better install an enabling environment conducive to refugee entrepreneurs, and a networking reception.
