“Kabul resident Kamila Sidiqi had a teaching degree, but when the Taliban took over, she was barred from teaching and barely able to leave her house. When her father and a brother were forced to leave the city, she became the breadwinner for her family — herself and five siblings. She knew how to sew, so she picked up a needle and thread, a whole lot of courage and became an entrepreneur with her own dressmaking business. She offered work to 100 other local women, forging bonds among oppressed women and creating a real community in very trying times.” New York Post -Billy Heller
