We love cookies, but we love them more when they’re being baked to support an important cause.
White Spoon Bakery not only sells delicious baked goods, but a chunk of those profits go towards supporting women’s education.
On this week’s episode, we sat down with Jawaher AlMoayyed to discuss her business initiative, which donates 50% of its profits to help women study
Jawaher believes, as we all must, that when you educate a woman you’re investing into the future of an entire generation, because that education will be passed down to her children and to the nation as a whole.

The business finds girls and women in Bahrain’s community who can’t afford to study, and help them pay for their tuition with the profits of the bakery
Jawaher wanted to create a “more sustainable way of giving” back to the community, as she put it, by linking a charity to a business – as the business grows, the charity grows along with it. They’ve helped about 15 causes so far, with an aim to continue to do more for women in our community.
“By sending a girl to school, she is far more likely to ensure that her children also receive an education. As many claim, investing in a girl’s education is investing in a nation.”
How can you contribute?
Buy some cookies! At the end of the day, the calories are serving a greater purpose, so there’s no way we can feel bad about them!
As a society, we have the power to do more for our community, and supporting local initiatives, which are doing so already, is the perfect way to create awareness and change things up for the better.
