Changing Children's Lives from a Kitchen in Crossgar!

Changing Children

On behalf of the children of Atsimombohitra Primary School and Ankotrabe Primary School we would like to thank Ryan's Cookie Box for funding story books for all the kids at these two schools.  

Whilst story books are a given in primary schools in Northern Ireland, they are a luxury item that few primary schools can afford in rural Madagascar. It's evident from the children's smiling faces that they were absolutely delighted to receive their new books! 


Each month Ryan and his assistant baker use their baking talents to raise funds for a charity of their choice. Their freshly baked treats, packaged with a healthy dose of TLC, are placed in an honesty box at the bottom of their lane. Customers make a donation to the charity of the month in exchange for a tasty treat.

After hearing an interview on BBC Radio Ulster about the work of the Adsum Foundation in Madagascar, Ryan and team selected us as their August charity of the month. During that period Ryan and friends raised an incredible £1300 pounds, some of which went towards our story book project. Further to fundraising, Ryan's Cookie Box also encouraged their supporters to donate bikes to our Bike aid Project.

We are so appreciative of the support and generosity extended to Adsum by Ryan's Cookie Box and look forward to working together again in 2018!
