School bakes bread to raise money

“ Celebrate Life SA has chosen it’s first donor to receive the breadmaking oven! The school is Emondini, outside Thula Thula Game Reserve . The reason for choosing the school is to empower the community surrounding the reserve, which in turn helps prevent the community from accepting bribes to inform on the whereabouts of the wildlife in the reserve for easy poaching.  Since we have chosen to support Thula Thula with the rhino sanctuary, it made sense to involve the community around the reserve. The oven allows 4 loaves of bread to be made every 25 minutes which will be sold by pupils and helpers to the surrounding areas. They are also able to bake pizza’s, snowballs and chelsea buns.

The school will be totally accountable for the business and in turn, Celebrate life will turn the profits into books, teachers or bursaries for pupils depending on the need. We are hoping to set up a bakery of 5 ovens within the school over the next year. Will keep you posted…”
