Official opening of Bakery Hearts kitchen
On December 5, 2017 (Tuesday), the Bakery Hearts programme at Cheng San FSC under AMKFSC celebrated a new milestone! Our honorary advisor Dr S. Vasoo, Chairman Dr Ang Seng Bin and CEO Dr Vincent Ng officially opened their newly renovated kitchen at Ang Mo Kio Community Centre (AMKCC).
Women who had participated in the programme over the years were also invited to join in the celebration. The ladies currently in the programme also took the opportunity to share that they have not only picked up baking skills through participating in Bakery Hearts, they have also made new friends and become more confident.
After a quick tour of the kitchen, commemorative plaques were also awarded to partners including AMKCC, Pan Pacific Hotels Group and Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre for their generous support.
Launched in 2010, Bakery Hearts is a programme that aims to provide women from low-income families with the opportunity to supplement their household income and prepare them for work. Through this programme, women are equipped with baking and social skills to empower them to re-enter the workforce.
