It all started when Markey taught women in her village how to bake bread, using the simple instructions from her Peace Corps handbook and ingredients she found nearby. The women eagerly learned and began baking bread for their families, and The Women's Bakery was born. 

Julie, also a returned Peace Corps Volunteer, leads our operations in East Africa today. As a team, we work in the US and Rwanda to empower women through employment. Bread power!
