French Cuisine Helps Me To Stay Out Of The Street



The proposed project aims at setting-up a socially responsible franchise dedicated at training and rehabilitating marginalized youth in the Philippines. This program will be composed of an cooking training center and an in-house restaurant emphasizing on a on-field learning and practicing. The project's innovation is based on the development of a social franchise which provides our trainees an opportunity to run their own business and sustain their living to be autosufficient.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are lack of training opportunities for young people, especially the most marginalized ones; lack of sustainable job opportunities for young people due to an informal and unrestricted labour market; poor working conditions for young people (underpaid, overworking hours); gender discrimination in training and employment opportunities; lack of coordination between training institutions and potential employment opportunities; poor development of the local food market ...

How will this project solve this problem?

There are numerous restaurants, cafes and bars located in Bacolod City, which have a significant impact on the labour market and the local economy. They hold potential opportunities of internships and/or employment for young trainees. Fortunately, french dishes are an new identified market and no french restaurant at the moment is available. After their training, the beneficiaries will be capable to be hired by local businesses operating in the food services industry in/around Bacolod City.

Potential Long Term Impact

This program intends to provide training services to at least 8 beneficiaries over the first year of operation (first training session). Upon the second year of operation, it will reach 15 trainees per session, i.e. 30 direct beneficiaries per year. Improvement of community integration thanks to the acknowledgement of the skills/competencies acquired over the theoretical and practical training. Increase of responsibility acting as a mature figure within the society thanks to the pro-added-value.
