In addition to funding the bursary, the London Chapter tries to support other charities and philanthropic organisations which also encourage the empowerment of women through food.
In this category, we are currently working with the Luminary Bakery, a part of the Kahaila Charity. Luminary was established as a proactive way to help disadvantaged and vulnerable women find a way out of their circumstances by learning to bake. They currently train 7 women per module in 4 modules per year. The students are supported by funds and grants from local councils and other sources. On graduating they are assisted in finding apprentice or other positions within the industry.
In due course it is hoped that the financial assistance offered by LDE London can cover extra placements on the bakery modules.
LDE London will support Luminary Bakery with financial assistance and establish a mentoring programme with them, by way of our successful Dames as role models and intended to elevate the aspirations of their students.
