Local Election Candidate for Dublin North Inner City

Ellie Kisyombe came to Ireland from Malawi in 2011 and has spent several years living in Direct Provision. During this time sheโ€™s lived through and witnessed the uncaring conditions people in this country’s asylum system experience.

Following a volunteering position with the Irish Refugee Council, Ellie co-founded Our Table in 2015 as a response to the ban on asylum seekers cooking for themselves and in order to give an outlet to her passion for food and cooking.

Our Table is as a community-based, non-profit project designed to highlight the need to end direct provision in Ireland. The project operates pop-up cafรฉs in Dublin and provides catering services in the rest of the country.

Creativity, activism and entrepreneurship have been the foundations of Ellieโ€™s life in both Ireland and Malawi – lessons and talents she hopes to bring to Dublin City Council.
