Have you seen my sisters TED talk?

Nafisa, my younger sister and Co-founder of Amaliah had the opportunity of visiting India with a programme called Digital India.

Whilst there, she documented her whole visit through beautiful photography and relayed her memories of India to family and friends, the paradox, the contrast, the organised chaos and the hospitality. She was met with poverty and a lack of opportunity on one hand whilst seeing an India that was surpassing the world in ways we are not even fully exposed too. She doesn't actually know I am doing this blog post but I felt we should share it. To remind myself and others that we can do more!

Honestly, the scariest thing about the book is how much Offred’s situation reminded me of conservative muslim countries, it reminded me of the situation of women in poverty…
