Nutritious Bread Baking with Faith and The Women's Bakery Team
Come spend a few hours learning how to bake highly nutritious, locally sourced breads at The Women's Bakery - Remera! Faith and some of the women will walk you through how they source local, nutritious ingredients to produce and sell fortified breads at affordable prices in their communities - meeting local demand with local supply.
The Women’s Bakery is a unique social enterprise operating in Rwanda and Tanzania providing women access to business education, life skills training, and applied baking and nutrition skills. From this, social and economic empowerment are born. Through a four month education and vocational training program, women learn to source local, nutritious ingredients to produce and sell affordable breads in their communities. Groups of women invest in our training fee and the appropriate bakery start-up costs. Once their bakery is in business, all profits are the women's own. Previously unemployed, these women are now working daily at the bakery and introducing new, nutritious products to their community. The specialty products include some of the best banana-nut bread and carrot muffins in Rwanda. Karibu!
