On November 14th, 2022 we celebrated the opening of our 10th Bakery School in Lebanon. The school was created to honor and memorialize Mr. Issam Hachwi  and has the objective to nurture career paths of underprivileged youngsters by training them to become future bakers. The program has been set to introduce students to the world of bakery, pastry, chocolate and ice cream of hopes creating careers in the industry.

25 students were recruited as the first promotion to be graduated from the 2-year program with a certified degree from the Lebanese Ministry of Vocational and Technical Education to create a career path in the baking industries for the region.

We invite students to join the bakery school by filling out the online form

“Hi, my name is Malak Al Arab. My experience at the academy has been amazing so far. I am very happy that I got the opportunity to be a student here and forge my way towards a great path with the help of amazing people. Baking has been a huge part of my life; it makes me extremely happy. I want to thank everyone who helped me through this and made it possible. It means the world to me and I will forever be grateful for the memories and many things I am learning. With time and hard work surrounded by my friends and teachers, I hope I can make everyone, including myself, proud in the future with everything we did and learned together.”


“My name is Ali Ayyad. At the beginning of this journey I was lost but in the meantime  I have become someone that is full of ambitions and dreams. This was already a big achievement for me because we live in a country where dreaming has become difficult. They say you need to be motivated and go after what you want but there should be someone by your side who sees your potential, that wants you to achieve and that believes in your abilities and ambitions. And this is what the Bakery School did. It feels great to be given this professional opportunity and this under the wings of expert chefs. I discovered that this world is endless and very wide, which made my ambition stronger and bigger. I’ve finally found my path. I believe in myself now, and because of all those awesome people who support and guide us, I am confident that this journey will open all the locked doors in front of me.”
