Community Bakery Project
A staple food for our targeted families is bread, most of which is produced in our establishing bakery, which is soon to be launched to stakeholders. The partnership with experienced bakeries within the local municipality is set to help improve the operations of this volunteer-operated bakery. Most of the Bakery’s proceeds are re-circulated back into the areas of the organisation’s economy to help promote and support the community
The objective of the MOWFSDA bakery project is to develop a profitable and sustainable bakery, upon which so many families depend. The end result will be to provide a steady food source to the community as well as a stable stream of funding for various programs currently being initiated.
The Director, Samkelo Mlambo along with relevant stakeholders will be conducting a constant follow-up and analyse the progress made by the Bakery. Our team will then look for ways to further improve on operations as well as opportunities to increase production and profits. We will also be looking to improve sanitary practices and the environmental effects of the bakery.
