Story

The 'Bhavishya Shakti' Mobile Teaching Kitchen initiative empowers women and communities by sharing knowledge and skills through the medium of nutrition education, with the aim to enhance health and wellbeing and tackle the triple burden of nutrition present in India

The project was on track to be sustainable model to empower Indian slumdwelling mothers through entrepreneurship and nutrition education. To reach the stage of sustainability we need funds to support the Mobile Teaching Kitchen unit and ensure a respectable salary for the working mothers for the first few months in a full-scale production.

Covid-19 has impacted the project and the community needs your support

With the current scenario that has evolved due to COVID-19, the project has been bound to pause selling sessions and nutrition education activities amidst the crowds of Kolkata.

Our Mobile Teaching Kitchen champions therefore now risk losing their livelihoods from Bhavishya Shakti activities and we want to ensure we are able to continue to support them through this period of uncertainty. They are also in need of purchasing sufficient disinfectants, sanitizers, soaps, masks etc. to protect themselves and their families in the unhealthy environment of slums.

With your support, our women and their communities can help fight Covid-19 and raise awareness of health and hygiene.

If you would look to go further, we are continuing this crowdfund to support the continuity of Mobile Teaching Kitchens. Here is what your funds can buy:

We need to equip the facilities, provide further training and materials, ensure that the Mobile Teaching Kitchen has the means to run, and to build more Mobile Teaching Kitchens units!

- Just £10 can help purchase basic supplies - (teaching ingredients e.g. vegetables, fruit, grains!) and utensils to run the Teaching Kitchen workshops.

- £20 (or more) can help towards the provision of electricity, gas, clean water, vehicle maintenance, health and safety, OR continuation of training for local mothers.

- £100 (or more) can contribute towards labour costs to support the project.

- £5000 can purchase a second Mobile Teaching Kitchen unit.

(All donations will go directly towards the project in India).

      Great program and even greater people working for the MTK. Always end up learning more from the mothers than what we could teach them.
