About Nadia Qani
Nadia Qani, born in Kabul/Afghanistan in 1960 and married to the grandson of the then viceroy, had to leave the country in 1980. She fled to Germany via Pakistan and London. On their arrival in Frankfurt the young family had nothing. Nadia Qani took on jobs on the cash desk at a DIY store, as a cleaning woman and an office clerk, bringing up two sons on the side. And slowly but surely, she worked her way up. In 1993 she set up a home nursing service. Nadia Qani has won a number of awards for her business and social achievements, most recently the Federal Cross of Merit in 2009.
