The Cake Lady

Cake Lady – this is a small cake business run by the older girls in Darjeeling.

For older children who are not academically inclined, there is a pre vocational training centre attached to the Foundation.  Here, the children learn hairdressing and beautician skills. They also learn how to sew and crochet, and the products they make are then sold locally.  There is also a registered small cake business which has been set up by the Foundation, known locally as “The Cake Lady”, which does good business in Darjeeling, and provides employment for a number of the older girls who live in the Foundation.
