Shama donates blankets to Shanghai Young Bakers students

by shama 1. December 2013 10:00

 

8 November 2013, Shanghai – Shama has been working with Shanghai Young Bakers (SYB) regularly including selling students’ baked goods at farmers markets. As the weather is getting colder at night, we have decided to take a step further by collecting blankets and comforters from our tenants and donated all of them to SYB students.

 

Started in 2008 by a team of 12 French volunteers, SYB provides a fully-sponsored French & Asian bakery training to disadvantaged Chinese youth. Due to the growing demand of bread on the Chinese market and the lack of qualified bakers, SYB graduates easily find a stable, qualified job after graduation and pull themselves out of the poverty cycle.

 

“Give an orphan some bread, you feed him for one day; teach him how to bake, you feed him for a lifetime!”

 

Initially six-months long, the training now lasts one year. In addition to bakery classes and practical internships, life skills and English classes have been added to further the graduates' career development opportunities. Since its inception, approximately 100 students have successfully graduated and a 6th batch is under way!

 

SYB is not only doing charity. By giving disadvantaged youth the opportunity to learn a valuable skill, they are empowered to lead independent lives and help others in return.
