ENL Foundation targeted unemployed and unskilled individuals from vulnerable families, with an aim to support them in launching their initiatives through empowerment. 7 women have shown tremendous determination in joining forces and launched their catering unit which they named ‘Saveur Typique’. These unemployed women have been involved in small culinary events in their own region, while developing their own culinary skills and cultivating the idea to launch their own income generating activity. Since July 2020, the women started selling local dishes on a pilot basis, and they have been able to secure a ‘clientele’ in their surrounding area. Unfortunately, as the space they are using is narrow and not well equipped, they are limited in their endeavour. This project proposal intends specifically to support these women in setting up a well-equipped and secure kitchen in a refurbished container that will be placed within the compound of ‘La Maison Communautaire Nou Tou Ansam’.
Project Update (May 2021)
Funds have now been received to purchase and refurbish the container. We will be working closely with Container City to ensure that the new ‘kitchen’ meets the needs of the women who run Saveur Typique in L’Escalier. We are so excited for them, to see this dream of theirs become a reality, and to support the ENL Foundation in this project. We will keep you up to date as to how we progress!
Project Update (November 2021)
The container is starting to look like a kitchen at last! After months of searching for a container and obtaining scarce materials in this post-Covid lockdown time, Urban Concept is doing a terrific job with the transformation. The windows and doors are in, as well as the electric rolling shutter. The counter frames have been soldered and the wooden panelling is creating a beautiful feeling. The ladies are so excited to see their kitchen taking shape. Soon it will be transported down to L’Escalier and delicious meals will be prepared for their customers. Thank you to our generous funders for making this dream a reality.
