Baobab Vegetarian Moringa Restaurant

The small Vegetarian Restaurant is the perfect place to rest during your visit in Cape Coast.  It lies between the Castle and the Market amidst the busy town.  Our patio, built in traditional style, has a nice view over the sea and the busy Commercial Street.  Friendly students of our school learn catering, cooking and practice their English. Together with our cook Christie, the students prepare delicious healthy vegetarian meals, snacks and juices. Our dishes with fresh tofu, soy and wheat chunks or oyster mushrooms are the specialty of our restaurant.  Vegetable Pies, Banana Cakes and Coconut Cakes are all made with whole-wheat flour.  Fresh Pineapple-Moringa Juice, Bisap or Ginger Juice are a must if you visit the Baobab Vegetarian Moringa Restaurant.
All vegetables we use are washed in saltwater and many come from the school-owned Organic Farm.

schueler You suppor ...

The most important aspect of the Baobab House is the idea of sustainability of the Baobab School Project.  Our Children can't pay school and feeding fees and all students stay during the week at our school centre.  With this business house we want to try to earn money in Ghana to finance the running costs of the school and become more independent of sponsorship.
Another aspect is the teaching of the students.  Those who help regularly at the Baobab House get an idea of business, book keeping, cooking, catering and dealing with local and foreign customers
Through the Baobab House we are known in Cape Coast and people from Ghana and from abroad come to visit us and try to find ways of supporting us.


anas Fashion Shop ...

More NON PROFIT enterprises are planned to help to finance the school in future.
