***MATCHING FUNDS CHALLENGE*** -- every dollar you give will be doubled!

Since the aftermath of the Rwandan Genocide, the women and girls of the Togetherness Cooperative have supported each other as sisters and mentors. In their rural community, there are few jobs for women, and most live on less than $1 a day.

These women and girls seek skills to break the cycle of poverty and empower themselves for life. 

That’s where you come in.

With your help, African Road will bring a bakery business to the women of Togetherness.  The bakery will provide:

  • Jobs for women
  • Training
  • Nutrition
  • Business skills
  • Financial skills
  • Sustainable income for the entire cooperative
  • A brand new, state-of-the-art bakery building!!! Pictured below.

Will you help to start the Women’s Bakery?  Donate $50 or an amount of your choice to African Road today. Your tax-deductible gift will help to open The Women’s Bakery and empower these women for life. 

***GREAT NEWS -- every dollar you give will be matched!*** Donate today and your gift will go twice as far to help us reach our goal! 

African Road's work goes beyond starting a bakery. We are working with communities throughout East Africa to help break the cycle of poverty.

Consider a recurring gift to African Road -- be a part of the bigger story!
