SYB has already grown for around a decade, during which it has encountered a lot of thistles and thorns. Funding is its primary challenge. Training people to become bread-makers and eventually breadwinners is costly. A year’s cultivation requires a sustainable input of ingredients, course venues, teachers and so forth. Marine, the Program Director, says it is often not enough to maintain operations simply with the contribution from partners. The surprise donation now and then (which makes up 5% of their funding) will not suffice either. Additionally, the income from business activities is also hard to predict. That’s why SYB can only train a batch of 32 students each year rather than expanding itself into a formal baking school. To solicit more financial resources, they have now turned to different social media platforms and exposures during market sales to gain more public attention.
