Every Friday, in a small town in southern Ghana, a group of teenagers assemble together at a local church. Everyone knows their place here; they quietly begin their work. A small group carries flour to the local mill to be mixed and kneaded into dough. Others clean and grease baking sheets so that they’re ready for the oven. Some carry the dough back from the mill, divide it up and then mould it into buns.  

The buns are left to rise overnight. The bakers meet again at 6am to bake the rolls for over two hundred children. Warm rolls and a bowl of porridge are served at 9am for breakfast at a local child development project. This group of teenage bakers consider it an honour to be trusted with this duty and grateful to be equipped income-generating skills for the future.
