Maymessy is supporting ladies from Refugee Resource into a food related business

We are supporting 11 migrant women into a food related business over the next two years.

This month we had a brilliant zoom workshop on naming a business and branding by Cathy who kindly volunteered her time to support the ladies. She inspired the women to use names and branding to connect with their traditions, cultures and countries of origin through colours, patters, pictures and designs. We are very excited to see what the ladies create.

We are being kindly funded by People’s Health Trust, Health Lottery South East & The Health Lottery for this two year project but already we know we need help with finances for public liability insurance, volunteers to help ladies set up Instagram pages and ideally space for café in Oxford.

We are loving our collaboration with Refugee Resource and thank Fatou the womens co ordinator for her help in this project.
