Sweet Flowers for Education!


Our new cookbook of Italian dessert recipes, all using fresh flowers, is dedicated to the determined and inspiring women who are lifting themselves and their families out of poverty, thanks to The Citizens Foundation (TCF). The vocational training program we support is making a sustainable impact in local communities.  

The hard-back, high-quality cookbook, edited and printed in Italy, contains 30 recipes by our supporter and marvellous Italian baker Alessandra della Porta Rodiani, edited by Laura Recordati, with the delightful illustrations that you see on the cover above by graphic artist Chiara Nordio.

A cookbook for good

30 recipes made using flower. If you have ever wondered how to mix up cinnamon with Gran Marnier this is the time to find out!

The book was written by three generous supporters of TCF, the NGO which has been building and managing schools in urban slums and rural communities across Pakistan for over two decades.

In a country where the rate of children out of school is alarming, TCF schools are a catalyst for entire communities change. With a female student ratio up to 50%, the schools not only welcome girls, but have turned out a thriving pool of graduates who have gone on to become teachers, qualified workers, university students, managers, and most important, mothers who make sure their own daughters obtain an education.


Vocational Training Program

TCF’s Vocational Training Project for community women is focussing on providing income generation skills such as sewing and embroidery, to enable underprivileged women to earn a livelihood for the first time. 

Your purchase of this book will go towards helping them achieve financial self-reliance

Anyone who has given serious thought to what life might be like to be without the skills needed to make a living, knows how rewarding this achievement might feel to a proud new bread earner.





Let’s have a look to the project:
