2. Bread sharing program

From 2015, we have been sharing bread made by our staff and bakery training students. In 2015, we shared bread to SATH SATH, the local NGO supporting street children and earthquake victim’s camp. In 2016, we keep share our bread to SATH SATH and we started to share with Shree Mahalaxmi Lower Secondary School located in Nakhipot once a month since June.


3. Capacity Building Training & Middle Management Training


In 2016, we opened 2 training for nepali women who want to get a job or start a business. First one is the Capacity Building Training, including the leadership of women, women empowerment, marketing and management, how to start a small business, who am I and basic account etc. The training course is not only learning from books, but also including actual practice like making own business plan and presentation, dealing conflicts with co-workers.

First class started in June and the second class started September and still is going on. After first training, 4 women who took the class want to open a shop. So, we’re preparing together to open a shop right now.

Middle Management Training is 1-month training for employees in DD Cafe and DD Bakery. This training is more advanced course for managers. Training including what is being a manager, how to manage, dealing conflicts in the office, leadership, advanced account, computer(basic and MS OFFICE) training.

Since the 2 trainings are very practical, students said it was helpful a lot to be confident and brave to start to work. We continue this training in 2017, and we’ll add more training and workshop about gender equality and women empowerment next year.
