In her address to the guests, Tahmena, a long time social worker, said, “it is our responsibility as those who are privileged to live in the west to donate to such causes given that there are people in our very own home countries who do not have access to even basic healthcare.” As a Professor of Social Work, Tahmena hopes to use this title to raise awareness on this and other issues within the South Asian community such raising the status of women and ending violence against women. One of the guests of the night said, “it is very inspiring to meet such a talented, worldly and diverse woman like Tahmena who at such a young age seems to have done it all.”
Sponsors of the event included Variety Jewellers, comedians included Rasul Somji and singers included Ranjit Chauhan and Mr. Naseem Fazle. Tahmena gave a special thank you to Oye! Times for their on-going support. Tahmena concluded the night with appreciation to the community for making the night a success and hopes to have many more such evenings in the near future.
