CHARITY

Supporting our local community

Our Story

Charity

As well as being a church and a cafe, Kahaila is also a charity. 

We want to take an active role in addressing issues that affect us locally, nationally and beyond. Over the years that we have been running as a cafe, we have set up four different charitable projects shown below. 

We are always interested to hear of new projects to support and work with, so please do let us know of any that interest you.

 

Kahaila Reflex

Kahaila Reflex are based in a women’s prison delivering non-formal education through accredited and innovative Life Skills courses, outreach, mentoring, and pastoral support to women in prison and as they resettle back into the community upon their release. Through our work we aim to empower women to break free from the destructive cycles they are caught in – equipping them with new skills, aspirations and hope for the future. We hope to aid successful resettlement and reduce re-offending.

Luminary Bakery

Our vision is to see women provided with opportunities to leave their vulnerable situations and be released into a positive future. We are a social enterprise offering opportunities for women from vulnerable backgrounds to build a future for themselves. We use baking as a tool to take women on a journey to employability. We offer courses, work experience and paid employment within our bakery. By investing in and releasing them to realise their dreams, through training, employment and community, we aim to break the generational cycles of abuse, prostitution, criminal activity and poverty.

Kahaila Brew

Kahaila Brew is an 8 week course designed for those who have experienced homelessness. Covering barista skills, customer service, CV writing and job interview techniques, the aim is to equip people with the skills needed for the speciality coffee industry to assist them getting a job, thereby ending the cycle of homelessness. The course also includes work experience in our busy East London cafes.
