In the summer of 2018, TWB launched the newest bakery in Rwanda—Gicumbi. The bakery opened after months of developing relationships with local leaders, vetting participants, and conducing our training program.
The vetting process for this bakery was detailed, intentional, and designed by our own team members. Essentially, we were searching for women who not only could commit to working at the bakery, but who also needed gainful, sustainable employment the most.
Today, the Gicumbi Bakery employs women both from Gicumbi and the nearby Gihembe Refugee Camp, providing opportunity to women who greatly need it. This is bread power.
