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 she’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 cafés in Dublin and provides catering services in the rest of the country.

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