About the programme

Cooking is something that comes for the most women as a duty and not voluntarily for fun. Therefore they cook often the same meals with one major goal: to satisfy the hunger of her family.

Our island welcomes cooking volunteers to help us in basic equipped kitchens. Most of the women have a few standard meals they are cooking, use the same ingredients over and over again, don’t have much fun cooking and spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

This is where you can help! You can teach the women what kind of local ingredients they can use and how to combine them in different tasty ways. You may show them easier ways to prepare the meals without losing flavour. Shortly spoken: You bring back the fun in the kitchen and help the women meanwhile to have a little more time for themselves. It is important to keep in mind that it needs a lot of improvisation because of limited resources on the island and need to follow Muslim traditions. However it also brings a lot of funny moments and creative outcomes. You are free of choice to teach them to prepare your favourite dishes and in return they will show you Asian cuisine as you have never experienced before. Before your arrival we will help you to prepare your cooking plan and answer all your questions.

This is one of way how you can empower them. You will be closely associated with the community members and women who are attending your cooking classes. You can act as a role model for women in our society and bring change into their lives. We guarantee you memories which will last a lifetime.
