Ujima Bakehouse Fundraiser

Across 3 nights e5 bakehouse are hosting a series of supper clubs in aid of Ujima Bakehouse in Kenya – a social enterprise bakery operating as an extension of the valuable work of two charities; UJIMA and PEEK vision.  Offering a real environment for young people within their programme to receive practical training as well as a viable means of earning revenue for the charities

 

PEEK vision provides Kenyans living in rural areas with sight-restoring treatment. For every 100 loaves sold at the bakery, one person has their eye sight restored. 

 

Back in early 2015 Ben flew the bakehouse for a couple of weeks to help the Ujima founders Madeleine and Andrew Bastawrous to set up the bakehouse.  He was working to train a team of novice bakers in Maili Saba, a lodge around 20 miles from Nakuru, Kenya’s 4th largest city when the bakery is situated.  

Across all three nights chef Ruth Quinlan will be serving a feast of food inspired by East African cuisine. On the first evening (Thursday 4th) there will also be a talk by founders Madeleine & Andrew Bastawrous.

 

Full menu coming soon.
