This project aims to facilitate the participants in bread and pastry making, to form a social group, and to impart upon the women some helpful skills for starting their own panadería.
This program meets once a week for roughly five hours. The participants elaborate products and then sell them the same afternoon during school recess at CENIT. The program tries to auto-finance itself, meaning that the supplies for the following week are bought with the profits of the previous. The objective is not only to sell the maximum amount of bread each week, but also to leave the participants with the skills to elaborate many different products.
The volunteer for this class must be at CENIT for a minimum of two months, and must speak an intermediate to advanced level of Spanish. They should have some experience in bread and pastry making, especially in large quantities. The volunteer for this class is responsible for teaching the class, for buying the supplies and managing the finances for the program.
