As part of Mid Maine Global Forum’s Oak-Grove grant to provide programs in schools and for the broader community, the Forum is please to host this documentary film. Soufra follows the unlikely and wildly inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a generational refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burj El Barajneh refugee camp just south of Beirut, Lebanon. The film follows Mariam as she sets out against all odds to change her fate by launching a successful catering company, “Soufra,” and then expand it into a food truck business with a diverse team of fellow refugee woman who now share this camp as their home.
Please bring friends and students for a powerful story of refugee women.
