Now, as the The Women’s Bakery Program Manager, I am looking forward to managing all existing and upcoming bakery projects in Rwanda, including overseeing trainings, problem solving with the wicked smart TWB team, and empowering women through business training, education and health promotion. I feel so lucky to have this role. This week I hit the ground running with bakery visits, team meetings, strategizing solutions and, of course, eating bread!
Connecting bicycling directly with our work in Rwanda, The Women’s Bakery has long dreamed of teaching our women in the bakery to ride bicycles which they can then use for more efficient bread deliveries.
Get a behind-the-scenes look at our newest partnership, with the U.S. Peace Corps. This partnership was facilitated by Peace Corps Volunteer, Sophie Hart. Following the launch of the new bakery, TWB spoke with Sophie about her experiences with the program and how she believes the community bakery can provide both education and economic opportunity for all.
