Project Overview

ENL Foundation targeted unemployed and unskilled individuals from vulnerable families, with an aim to support them in launching their initiatives through empowerment. Seven women showed tremendous determination in joining forces and launching their catering unit which they named ‘Saveur Typique’. These unemployed women have been involved in small culinary events in their own region, while developing their own culinary skills and cultivating the idea to launch their own income generating activity. Since July 2020, the women have been selling local dishes on a pilot basis, and were able to secure a ‘clientele’ in their surrounding area. Unfortunately, the space they were using was narrow and not well equipped, they were limited in their endeavor.  This project supported these women in setting up a well-equipped and secure kitchen in a refurbished container within the compound of ‘La Maison Communautaire Nou Tou Ansam’, successfully serving their community and surrounding area.
