Sr. Stephaney helps with construction of a bakery and baking machine

"I can proudly and honestly say that SLDI has made a difference in every aspect of my life: from spiritual, social/mental and economic. I have come to understand how to identify the real needs of people, projects and even myself, how to work with others in a team or develop personal leadership skills. I have learned how to find ways of meeting or satisfying the needs of the community. SLDI has made me have open eyes and ears to opportunities around me."

This project is directly addressing UN Sustainable Development Goal(s):

End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages Sustainable Cities and Communities

Assessing the needs of her community and project Sr. Stephaney sought ways to address these needs.

I have learned how to find ways of meeting or satisfying the needs of the community.  SLDI has made me have open eyes and ears to opportunities around me.”

One of these projects that I tackled immediately after the training was to refurbish out host bakery.  I made a personal contact with Bro. Martine Chapper of the Society of the Missionaries of Africa for financial assistance to buy a new host baking machine. I requested a pro forma invoice from the company manufacturing baking machines in Germany, computed estimate costs for clearing goods at the port and sent the details to Br. Martine. The total cost was $7,000.

In addition, I wrote another grant to the Conrad Hilton Fund for Sisters, and was awarded $10,000 for the construction of the bakery and installing the new bakery machine. This project has created jobs for the sisters and the community.
