For readers of "Three Cups of Tea", the story of a fearless young woman turned entrepreneur who saved her family and brought hope to the lives of dozens of women in war-torn Afghanistan, written by a former reporter of ABC News. When the Taliban took control of Kabul, Kamela Sediqi and all the women of Kabul saw their lives transformed. Overnight they were banned from schools and offices and even leaving their front door on their own. Desperate to help her family and support her five brothers and sisters at home, Kamela began sewing clothes in her living room. Little did she know then that the tailoring venture she started to help her siblings would be the beginning of a dressmaking business that would create jobs and hope for 100 neighbourhood women.
