A Small Gift Makes a Huge Difference

RoundTrip Foundation’s Xmas Appeal is raising funds for our bakery school project in Sri Lanka

Terrorist attacks have crippled the tourism industry in Sri Lanka – a major funder of our bakery school. RoundTrip will do whatever we can to keep the school running but we need your help!

  •  It takes $1000 to put a student through the bakery school
  • The school kitchens are in need of vital equipment
  •  Currently 20 to 22 students are graduating every year

 

Summary of the bakery school project:

The project teaches teenage (female) victims of sexual abuse, cooking and baking skills enabling them to gain employment.

It provides an opportunity for a better future for girls who have had the worst possible start to life.

The project has been hugely successful:

  •  79 girls have graduated from the bakery school program
  • About 93% have found employment
  • About 65% have been reunited with their families
  • 19 girls have married and 7 of them are proud mothers!

For more on this amazing program see the project page. For the backgrounds of previous students, go to our student bios page.
