How You Can Be Involved

The project is divided into two phases, and the first phase is getting the bakery up and running. The bakery is meant to be the foundation of the project. Our goal is for the bakery to be self-sustaining and fully operational in its second year. All of the bakery’s profits are going back in to the project for use in a micro finance program to support the people who have completed the training. That way, program graduates will be able to begin again with their needs met and even start up businesses of their own.

Once the bakery is running well, we will enter the second phase: establishing a coffee shop, which will be located in the same building as the bakery. The cost to begin first phase of the project, with baking equipment, working capital, etc., is specified in the chart below.

We need prayers for wisdom and favour from God to be able to run this project in such a way that it will become a blessing for many and glorify our Father.

If you want to be a part of this project, we ask you to consider four things:

1) Commit to praying for the project. Without God, we can do nothing. He is the provider of all the wisdom, skills, strength, and finances we need.

2) Sign up for our newsletter. When you sign up for the newsletter, you will receive regular prayer requests and project updates. You can sign up by following the link or the QR code below.
