When Markey Culver signed up for the Peace Corps, she requested to go anywhere besides Rwanda…she was placed in Rwanda and 2 years later the reason became clear. She “accidentally” founded The Women’s Bakery.
She spent her first year as a PCV eating 1 meal a day in solidarity with the villagers where she served. Eventually, hunger inspired her to get creative with local ingredients.
- Markey built a bakery that was later bulldozed- a great lesson in capacity building
- How do you create hyper-local economies that are reliable?
- What can Hamburger University teach us about development?
