Since launching in 26 September 2020 we have had 18 women stay at the Soul House (accurate as of 3/01/2020) and over 250+ visit us over chai sessions and at gatherings. We have raised $11 000 and $20 000 in pledges from our community. We are not funded by any government or support entity at this point in time. Initially this was funded by a donation by our founder Daizy Maan, who remains on the residence in a volunteer capacity.
Book club is an initiative to celebrate female South Asian authors and their works.
We read select books by Indian and Pakistani women and get together regularly to discuss. Currently, we are reading See No Stranger by Valarie Kaur. Open to all genders in Australia and India.
