Our Story

Livelihood and Life Skills

We started the Bakehouse to meet an identified need: to empower women in the greater Myanmar economic and social communities. By providing our apprentices opportunities to gain life and work skills, they gain dignity and confidence to move into the workforce as employees and small business owners. Our women commit, receive a fair wage salary and benefits and work hard to change their lives.
