Kenyan charity bakery seeks funding
Training project will empower teenage mothers, other young women and widows
Visitation Daughters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary are seeking funding to build a bakery for Katolo Olasi in Kisumu County, about 320km from the Kenyan capital Nairobi.
The charity, which has already secured land in the village and bakery equipment, needs to raise €35,500: €25,000 to build the structure itself and €10,500 to purchase a delivery vehicle.
The bakery will be used to pass on professional bakery skills for employment to teenage mothers, widows and young women.
If you would like to make a donation, or find out more, please email Sister Caroline Atieno.
Once the bakery has been built, Sister Atieno will also be keen to hear from any professional baker / bakery owner who might be willing to share their knowledge with her team to help make the project a success.
