Thank you to our Women’s Bakery Champions for bringing the bakery dream to life!


Women and girls of the Togetherness Cooperative

Since the aftermath of the Rwandan Genocide, the women and girls of the Togetherness Orphan Cooperative have supported each other as sisters and mentors. In their rural community, there are few jobs for women, and most live on less than $1 a day. These women and girls seek skills to break the cycle of poverty and empower themselves for life!

The Women’s Bakery

The Women’s Bakery is an amazing partner organization that trains and supports women to source local ingredients, bake and sell fortified breads, manage business operations and ultimately own their own bakery. Bakeries not only bring food to the community, but also enrich the local economy. African Road is thrilled to partner with The Women’s Bakery to bring this comprehensive training to the girls of Togetherness.
