The cooking program evolved out of the mentoring program. While the long-term plan is to equip each family to start their own small business selling food to the community, the short-term is a lot of fun also! To accommodate the limited space, just a couple of people from each family learn the lesson each week, but they are tasked to teach it to the rest of their family that week. This builds dignity and self worth as the individuals see they have something to offer and teach their family. Not to mention the joy of delicious treats created with simple and affordable ingredients that now provide the snack for the Saturday activities.
