What do you do when you’re new to a country, can not communicate, not knowing the culture? How do you pave the way for women who live alone or with their families in Hamburg? One cooks together, communicates with hands and feet, first shy, then courageous, eats together and thus finds together. Over time, a cooking class for refugee women turned into a social business: chick peas, chicks (self-confident women), and peace became Chickpeace in 2016. Today, the Chickpeace women from Syria, Somalia, Eritrea and Afghanistan cook and deliver caterings in the Hamburg area for small and large private companies, workshops and events. Wonderful!
