St. Anthony’s Parish Bakery Elubo, Ghana
St. Anthony’s Parish & School is located in a border town in the western region of Ghana. In addition to being a poor rural community, it is also undeveloped and thus suffers economically. In response to the high youth unemployment in Elubo, and the importance bread plays in the Ghanaian diet parish leadership, along with its youth group, set about to build a bakery that would achieve their stated objectives of providing work for youths, guaranteeing sustainability for a key food product, and raising parish funds to defray school tuition for parents.
The beneficiaries of this project are the 30 selected youth from St, Anthony Parish and the Township, and over 1,000 residents of Elubo.
The structure which includes a production room, store rooms, and an employee resting/dressing room is at the window level stage at present. Construction has come to a halt; however, as the locally raised funds have been expended.
You can help them to finish the project which is vital to improving their quality of life.
