With UNICEF Afghanistan, she was appointed as women leader to run so many empowerment projects for women and encourage them to startup businesses from scratch by giving them business plans and supervise them.  

Tahera was also the project advisor in the vaccination department with both UNICEF Pakistan and Afghanistan.


Not too late, Tahera joined Department for International Development- UK, and been appointed to manage a major project of Micro-finance and worked very close with ministry of Finance in Afghanistan. Her target was to reduce level of poverty across the country -Afghanistan.


Tahera moved to Australia and straight after she joined the office of Fair Trading as customer service officer. She also worked with Roots Project Australia, Lindsay Taylor Lawyers and Sargent Security Group as company accountant and office administrator.


Tahera had too much to offer and she realized working in one place is limitation to her skills and capability.  She then established her social platform in 2001 called “Voice of Afghanistan” blog. She started writing about her experience and life in Afghanistan. Not too late after, she was approached by Foreign Policy Association to write on their social platform for her country and experience. She happily took the offer and officially was a writer on their platform too.


Tahera is a real worrier, she wanted to expand herself more into corporate sector and wanted to expand.  So she established her own private tax firm called “T & R Accountants Pty Ltd” in 2009.  She made her way through “Corporate world” in private sector.


Tahera is a member of professional Association - IPA (Institute of Public Accountants), Registered member of Tax Practitioner board with individual and Master license, governed by Australian taxation office (ATO) and is also an Australian Security & Investment Commission (ASIC) registered Agent.  Tahera also is the founder of Afghan Professional Group social platform.

​She came so far to where she is now, not through easy way but very hard and dark days behind.

​She is a single mother of two children age 8 and 11. Living in Australia with no family members and friend, running a company, charity and supporting over 500 refugees is itself a great achievement which needs to be acknowledged.

Due to current crisis of Afghanistan, Tahera has delivered many emergencies assistant to newly arrived Afghan refugees in Sydney. She delivered food, clothes, and gift vouchers, welcomed refugees with a big welcome party with more than 100 people from local communities and NGO organizations.
