CAFE & BAKERY TRAINING | LIBERTY PROJECT AFRICA | GOTOPEMBA - R&D
Set on Pemba’s main Wimbi beach; opening in 2019, The Liberty Cafe will be a standard setting, world class cafe and a beacon of hope; telling of victories, restoration, birthed dreams and true identity in the lives of those women we serve and to the community we live in.
Liberty Cafe will be a cafe and bakery designed to vocationally train and employ women who graduate our Freedom Program. These women come from backgrounds of sexual abuse, oppression and exploitation. This is an exciting addition to our current activities and will allow us to continue to walk alongside each women in a training, discipleship and employment capacity. Vocational training and life skills in Bakery, Cooking, Customer Service, Barista, and Cafe Management will be provided to each women in the cafe and bakery program. This follows on from our initial 12 month Freedom Program focusing on identity, discipleship, health, english and varied vocational skills training.
We have identified job creation is a major need in Pemba to provide dignified work and sustainable financial futures for the women we serve and their families. Providing a safe and healthy job environment is vital and will be a factor in lowering the statistics of transactional sex, sexual abuse and sexual exploitation; it will help to also lower the extremely high PTSD rates that result from this toxic cultural practice. We hope that the Liberty Cafe will bring women in Northern Mozambqiue freedom, restoration, transformation and hope; stimulating generational change!
This will be a non profit facility established to train and employ women and to help create financial sustainability for our organisation to serve hundreds of women in the years to come.
