SHE + HEROES = SHEROES
In a famous city of Taj Mahal Acid attack, survivors have found hope to live there livelihood on their conditions at the Sheroes Cafe. It is a famous cafe at Agra run by survivors of acid attacks. This cafe was founded by Rupa in 2014 and only in a few short spans of time, it has managed to become one of the popular food junction in the city. Not only in Agra, but it is also running in Lucknow and Udaipur now. Unlike any other café or restaurant, this one is going to be solely run by the acid attack survivors.
Rupa is running a brilliant campaign to raise awareness against acid attacks through Sheroes. Each employee at this cafe is just like Rupa, brutally attacked by acid thrown on their faces at a very small age. Whatever be the reason, whether it was due to a rejected marriage proposal, or a in-laws’ hatred, these women have faced a lot in their life.
Just because of Sheroes these women have started taking a breath of life. Because of this campaign all the acid attack victims come together so that they could support each other and earn a livelihood. Most of the customers who visited at Sheroes are foreigners and the thing which they love about the place is their hospitality.
This cafe only serves vegetarian dishes taken from North Indian and Continental items. Another fascinating thing about this place that, customers can pay how much they wish like as there is no exact bill. Though the cafe makes a handsome amount of profit throughout the year, they also run the crowdfunding from time to time.
The women working at the cafe are the true fighters, who have the courage to live, work and walk in the midst of the society.
