In a bustling, energetic city in South East Asia, Daz and Bee are establishing a café with a purpose. Witnessing high levels of poverty in this country they have been inspired by the story Jesus told that the Kingdom is like a mustard seed, when planted it grows and its branches provide shade for the birds. The café is starting small with a dream to become an entity that brings blessing, rest and hope to the community they live among.
When the café is up and running, the focus will grow to be a social enterprise to provide opportunities for local villagers to acquire skills and training in the hospitality industry. The business will be centred on a traineeship program, initially barista training opportunities to excel in a growing speciality coffee scene. This café exists to be a blessing in the community, to be a space where people can experience love and peace and see hope for their lives.
Through practical, upskilling opportunities, Daz and Bee want to see the people of South East Asia experience hope and escape the cycle of poverty and despair through gaining practical qualifications for long-term employment.
As the business starts, there are significant capital investments required. Would you come alongside Daz and Bee through prayer and financial partnership in this?
In 2023, the budget covers:
- A two year lease
- Contractor expenses for renovations to fit out the building to be a café
- Interior designer to design the café
- Capital to purchase equipment – pre-loved where available and new where required
- Staff salaries
- First year operating costs
- Establishing a traineeship
In 2024 and beyond, the project fundraising will significantly decrease as the business gets established and increases revenue.
