Brooklyn Restaurant Lights the Way for Refugees

United Nations published this video item, entitled “Brooklyn Restaurant Lights the Way for Refugees” – below is their description.

In the New York borough of Brooklyn in the United States sits a little restaurant called Emma’s Torch. This is no ordinary restaurant. It is a beloved neighbourhood eatery, but also functions as a training centre for refugees.

Founded by Kerry Brodie in 2016, the restaurant has trained over 100 refugees from more than 40 countries. During a ten-week programme, students learn basic culinary and customer service skills, along with English, resume writing, and interview skills.
