Ovenderful BakesTreat Program

Ask for an update
19th July 2016
Dear supporters,
 35 bakers completed the first round of distribution on 16-17th July 2016 and covered over 2000 children in our urban poor settlements/railway stations and streets in Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi/NCR, Pune and Coimbatore. The next round of distribution is on 30-31st July. Healthy cakes and biscuits are being distributed. 

What is this about - 
Everyday we see a child on the street- homeless, hungry and neglected. We can’t change everything overnight but in a small way, Ovenderful would like to do something about this. And that is how the ‘Ovenderful BakesTreat Program’ was born. The aim of the program is to:

1. To reach out to these children and help them experience the joy of baked goods since that is a huge rarity for them.

2. To ensure that through a nourishing healthy regular bake they gain nutrition in some form however small.

Modus Operandi
An identified set of volunteer bakers segregated by local areas, across cities, in India will consistently distribute healthy baked goods on fortnightly basis to the street children in that identified area, on pre-scheduled dates to ensure regular as well as personal distribution.There are expected to be close to 50 bakers who will be involved in this program in the initial phase.

These goods will be freshly prepared at home with utmost care for nutrition and hygiene. There will be a defined set of healthy baked goods that will form a part of what the bakers can choose to bake from.

Additionally, partnerships with NGOs who are working with street children, children in urban slums and of migrant labour will support distribution of baked goods.

What will the funds be used for
The cost of baked goods for each child is Rs.150. We hope to impact 500 children with the funds raised. This will help in meeting the cost of the ingredients that will be used for baking the baked goods.

The roll out of this program will be for 6 months.

About Ovenderful
Ovenderful has been actively involved in fundraising bake sales and using baking to make a social impact for the past 4 years, starting with vocational training skills for girls at Search Years in Gurgaon, fundraising sales for animal welfare organizations and so on. Ovenderful Mom Bakers Community, the FB group was instrumental in carrying out the extremely impactful "Bake a Sunshine Cake" initiative across cities in India where several volunteer bakers baked to bring sunshine in the lives of those in need within their communities, local areas, old age homes and orphanages. The same group is also focusing on the #PowerofOne initiative where some volunteer bakers have reached out to women in need and shared healthy bakes which are linked to women's wellness, and made them aware of how their health is important.
