Ifakara Bakery Project

  • 4 people are interested

For the past 20 years, our charity has been providing free bread to various groups in the community of Ifakara, Tanzania. Having built the bakery, which is now operated by a group of Franciscan nuns, we focus on raising funds for the 'The Free Bread' providing local kindergartens, an orphanage, a leprosy centre and several wards at the local hospital daily bread. This bread is a lifeline for these groups who would not be able to afford it otherwise. We also have other projects such as irrigation, wells, beekeeping and education.
We are currently updating our website but the original site is www.ibpfreebread.com for more information.
Along with updating the website, we are also joining Facebook and Twitter. We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and caring social media manager who can post regularly to these sites for us and work closely with our administrator to raise awareness, inform and educate people about our charity.

Mission Statement

Provide free bread to those who need it to prevent starvation in a town in Tanzania, Africa. We value the fact that 100% of donations go to the free bread fund. We provide free bread to the local orphanage, leprosy centre, malnourished patients at the local hospital, a mentally disabled school and several kindergartens and primary schools in the area of Ifakara, Tanzania.


My parents started the charity 20 years ago, they raised money, designed and developed a bakery that a group of Franciscan nuns runs. The bakery is an independent enterprise now, but my parents wanted to make sure that those in the community who also needed the bread but couldn't afford it also had it.
Until Covid-19 my parents were raising funds by giving talks to groups around the UK, but now we are seeking new avenues to create awareness and need an updated website to do it.
