Recipes for the future
Eritrea Education and Training - Women's Empowerment
The female literacy rate in Eritrea is dramatically low. The “Recipes for the Future” project supports the education and formation of young girls in need (young mothers, widows and poor women) through a two-year practical-theoretical restoration course. The aim of the project is to increase the number of women in the labour market, especially in the tourism industry, in order to promote emancipation and autonomy. To ease communication between tourists and future workers, we provide English lessons with the culinary ones. The course takes place in a structure of the nuns Daughters of Sant’Anna, who are directly in charge of the education of the women, in Asmara. At the end of the course, the participants receive a degree, approved by the Ministry of Public Education in Eritrea.
As to now, the graduates have been 31; 12 of them work in the catering, 7 in hotels, 10 in restaurants and 2 are housewives
