AL FIDAA SCHOOL OF BAKING LOGOAL FIDAA SCHOOL OF BAKING

Brief Overview: The Al Fidaa School of Baking was opened on the 7 August 2017. The 4 week Home Bakers Course is offered free without any fees or payment to 6 students of disadvantaged communities who are inexperienced in baking and decorating.

Students are tutored by a graduate of Capsicum Culinary Studio and taught how to bake and decorate cupcakes, cakes and biscuits. This course allows them to earn an income from home immediately. Products baked by the students are donated weekly to Old Age Homes and Orphanages in Port Elizabeth.

We would really appreciate any contribution [donations, baking equipment and ingredients, vouchers, recipe books, etc.] for our School of Baking and for the 6 students who graduate monthly. Corporate companies are encouraged to sponsor or form a partnership with us so that we can sustain and expand our School of Baking.
