Through The Baking Project & Sweet Retreat, our goal is to empower Thai women, that have been given the opportunity to leave behind situations in which they were vulnerable and at risk. Through the baking and sugar-crafting programme, they learn essential skills and vocational training to enable them to rediscover their dignity, value and give them a renewed hope for the future and the opportunity to become specialists in baking & sugar artistry.
Through this programme, they learn to add their own creative flair and originality to cupcakes, celebration cakes, wedding cakes and baked goods. Once they have graduated from the training course, they then have the opportunity to work in the Sweet Retreat not-for-profit Social Enterprise Bakery, where their skills can flourish as they continue to grow in confidence.
When ready, they also have the opportunity to learn business skills, that provide them with the ability to set up their own businesses.
