Elephant Cooperation’s partner school, Amson Education Centre, in Mathare, Kenya, has become a beacon in their community where 281 students are currently enrolled.
Built within the school grounds is Vinmark Bakery, a small business that helps fund the school with the profits made, and feeds the children with the goods it produces.
This bakery will be the focus of the partnership between Dr. Norm’s, Cannabis Now and Elephant Cooperation.
The goal of PROJECT BAKE will be to encourage entrepreneurship and sustainable business models by upgrading the facilities and baking equipment to help Vinmark become more efficient and more profitable.
With your help, we can greatly improve the condition of this kitchen!
Amson Education Centre educates and empowers children in the Mathare slum where the students are given three meals a day. By providing nutrition for the students, Elephant Cooperation has seen their energy levels and focus increase dramatically.
The nutrition program not only helps to alleviate the villagers’ stress of providing food for their children, it also becomes an incentive for families to encourage their children to attend school and for teachers to provide the best education possible.
A portion of all proceeds from every bag of Pecan Shortbread cookies we sell will go towards supporting the Project Bake effort.
In addition to raising funds, we will share what we know about manufacturing and selling baked goods to help Amson and Vinson Bakery create increased sustainable revenue.
To promote this initiative, Cannabis Now is providing their media channels as a means to reach the public. Through print advertising, editorial content, web banners and social media marketing, they will encourage their audiences to support Project Bake.
We are very grateful for their generous contributions!
