    Abebea Behraki has lived through experiences unfathomable to most Australians, having spent 27 years in a refugee camp in Sudan.

    But when she finally made it to Australia four years ago, her goal was the same as many locals: to have meaningful employment.

    Ms Behraki found work in a social enterprise kitchen in Hobart, run through the Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania.

    The cafe and catering business was set up two years ago to help migrants share their culture and to gain work experience.
