Workshop bakery in Järvakandi community house, Leader grant 30,000 and Kehtna municipality 2500€

Activity period- 01.05.2022-30.04.2024

The priority problem is the relapse of the clients of the Rehabilitation Service of the Working House to their addictive behaviour, which in turn has a negative impact on their employment and general subsistence.
As a solution, we offer a bakery in a community house, where work and communication skills are trained by practicing everyday work in the bakery, a new identity and a mutually supportive community are created in order to move more smoothly to the open labour market. We are a bridge between separated rehabilitation and a new, independent life.
We can fulfill our mission through commercial activities by offering bakery products as retail in a community house café.
In order for a catering establishment to be established in the building of the association, the following activities are necessary:
Design – the main project of järvakandi guest and community house and its special parts (special projects for electricity, water and sewerage and ventilation). Based on the main project, we can take accurate price offers from construction companies and choose the most affordable solution.
Building permit from the municipality for the reconstruction of the bakery kitchen and repair of the staff's living rooms.
Construction of the bakery's kitchen and staff room.
Owner supervision- supervision of construction works in order to achieve the best quality and correct documentation.
Increase of main fuse – three-phase electrical capacity corresponding to bakery equipment (add 40A)
Purchase, installation and setup of bakery equipment in the kitchen of järvakandi community house bakery.

Opening a bakery

Comprehensive activity and financial plan of NGO Workhouse 4000 €

Project period 01.04.-30.07.2022

Due to the addition of several activities in the form of a community house in Järvakandi, the association needs the support of strategic management, preparation of an action plan and financial management. At the moment, the association has a separate rehabilitation activity with its cooperation partners and financial scheme, a business plan has been drawn up for the accommodation service and there is also partial funding from Leader, work is underway on the design of the bakery and café and community space, and there is a draft business plan for the bakery. In addition, it is necessary to pay more attention to the Järvakandi community and their involvement.
We have reached a point where launching so many new initiatives requires taking time off and creating a complete picture. The association has the least experience in bakery and café. With the help of support, the association hires an expert who, on the one hand, helps to create the whole picture, but on the other hand knows and knows the field of catering.

Cost of activities – winters and open day coffee breaks, small equipment, travel expenses 500.-
Development expert cost 3000.-
General and development costs of the workhouse 500.-

Partial support of MTÜ TÖÖMAJA "Järvakandi Guest and Community House Development" 12 323 € and Kehtna parish 3000 €

Direct objective of the project: The accommodation service premises of stage 1 of the järvakandi guest and community house development are ready. Tallinn mnt 17, the second floor of Järvakandi (former Järvakandi rural municipality house) has been adapted for accommodation. People have available rental premises to enter vacancies in Järvakandi and the immediate area.
The economic activity of the workhouse is more diverse. This no longer depends solely on the provision of rehabilitation services, but the investment in accommodation allows to mitigate the risks of the sustainability of the company. Residence in the guest and community house is a good prerequisite for rehabilitation graduates to blend into the community. The fact that former problem people live in a supported, modern environment and are involved in the community adds a sense of security to the residents of Järvakandi. The first phase will be completed in 2022.
