The ‘Hearty Wholesome Bakery’ is an initiative aimed at training women in the art of baking in order to create locally manufactured, healthy and delicious baked goods such as fortified breads, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, marmalades and more.
With support from a group of skilled home bakers, women who typically come from backgrounds with little to no access to training are taken through a baking training programme after which they are offered a full-time position in the bakery where they can continue learning while earning.
Wholesome, local and organically sourced ingredients are a cornerstone of the baking programme so that healthy and nutritious eating is promoted within the community.
Heart of Wholesome Organic and Wellness Products
The ‘Heart of Wholesome Organic and Wellness Products’ is TFPI’s women empowerment and employment initiative that teaches women survivors how to create quality homemade wellness products such as home-made soaps, body-butters and lip balms.
The products utilize locally-sourced, organic and natural ingredients such as aloe vera, sandalwood, oats, fruit and flower extracts, turmeric and essential oils among other natural ingredients that are hypo-allergenic and nourishing to the skin, instead of harmful preservatives and parabens.
