Gormanston Road Store Upgrade

$5,385 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 73 people in 29 days

Five months ago we bought Gormanston Road Store with the intention of providing employment to former refugees and asylum seekers who have settled in the local area and introducing Tasmanians to the delicious food of Afghanistan.  It was a small, dated takeaway shop and we have been renovating and trying to turn it into a fresh, friendly place for Moonah's multicultural community to eat.

Five months on, we have had a number of major equipment breakdowns  including our commercial grill which is not repairable, the tandoor oven that we bought second hand was not approved for installation and we are in desperate need of new signage, better seating and if possible some new point of sale equipment so our staff who are still learning English can use the till.

So to meet our business goals we need to upgrade existing equipment and buy some new pieces.  

Currently we employ 6 staff on a casual basis and if we get our equipment in place we can increase this number. 

Its incredibly hard for former refugees and asylum seekers  to find ongoing employment in Tasmania and so many just leave to re-settle in Melbourne or Sydney.

  We want to help keep them here by offering them ongoing employment and on the job training.

If we have a working tandoor oven we can serve delicious naan with all of our meals and also sell it to the local community.  This would give another person a few hours of employment every day!

So if you would like to help us, please make a donation to our campaign.

Thank you so much for your help.
