Bake for Change is a Baking Club founded by a group of friends in June 2010 that meet once a month to enhance their baking skills and try out new recipes. The idea of baking alone was quickly discarded and replaced by baking for the less privileged of our society, such as children in orphanages, special correctional facilities, hospices, as well as old peoples homes and other institutions every second month.
After taking a break from their annual Spelling Bee & Reading Competition in 2017, they are back in action this year. The Bake for Change Development Foundation is a not for profit non-governmental organization that focuses on youth empowerment & education in Lagos Nigeria. The Bake for Change Educate the State Spelling Bee & Reading Competition 2018 will have participants between the ages of 10 and 18 resident in the 6 Special Correctional Centres and Approved Schools in Lagos State.
