Café of Learning

Year: 2016
Country: Zambia

Project Description

The Kanyanda’s Women’s Group is an economic cooperative that has successfully established its own bakery business. This year, the eight women of the association would like to establish their own café — the Café of Learning — and jam business, taking advantage of the locally available fruit to create fruit preserves and jellies to sell. The project seeks to create the infrastructure needed to begin jarring jams in advance of major sales periods, allowing the women to pre-make products and invest time and energy on their growing venue expansion. Profits from the operation will be used to support the participants’ households and pay their children’s school fees.
