Just a year ago Bongiwe Dube graduated from Anna’s Baking School with big hopes and aspirations. Her vision was to move people away from their “I can’t mentality” to an “I can mentality”. She hoped to not only teach the skill of cooking but also to instill a passion for it so that her learners may one day have the opportunity to open their own businesses. Through faith and a lot of determination she has already accomplished some of her biggest dreams
“The student has become the master as Bongi Dube is now heading up a cooking and baking school right here in Hirsch’s Centurion Homestore. Here she has the ability to teach and inspire other learnersand Hirsch’s Centurion is proud to host Bonaria School of Baking and Cooking.” Said Hirsch PRO Leanne Jardim,
Bongi recruited 3 students from church where she is also a pastor. Duduzile Majola owns a small baking business which she wants to expand and with Bongi’s help, she will learn vital skills that are necessary to grow her business. Gugu Maphanga has taken this opportunity to gain more knowledge and develop her skills while Milcah Chinaka has great plans for the future. She saw this as an investment in herself to take her skills to the next level so that one day she can open up her own bakery and catering business.
