We need your help to get this off the ground and complete the first phase of work. Please pledge what you can, even £2 will go a long way to helping us hit our target! The first step to get the cafe up & running is to carry out surveys of the building to find out exactly what work needs to be done, & to work with architects, surveyors & other professionals to draw up designs & plans. TATI will be a non-profit social enterprise lead by BAME women & young people in Brick Lane. It will be a cafe inspired by Bangla food: home-made. TATI will source sustainable & organic food, developing & supporting existing suppliers. TATI believes in 'slow cooked' food giving time to our health & well-being. TATI wants to bring 'Bangla culture' back into the heart of Bangla Town/Brick Lane!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Brick Lane is the central hub of London's alternative scene and the historical centre for London's East End British Bangladeshi community. TATI is a cafe where you experience Bangla home cooking wisdom by bringing together the women who cook family recipes at home with young people to train, teach and gain confidence sharing Bangla hospitality and culture. TATI: an enterprise that aims to engage BAME women and young people in London. TATI aims to develop creative collaborations in order to improve employability and entrepreneurship opportunities through a café & gallery environment. The social impact will be: People: Engagement & Culture: Working with BAME & young women and Knowledge Sharing; Planet: Food: Responsibly sourced; Energy efficiency; Knowledge Sharing. TATI will be a multi-purpose space providing food/drinks, activities during the evening & weekends, talks/seminars, music & other activities. Some will be fee paying others will be free.
Steps to get it done:
TATI is innovative because it has supporting disadvantaged marginalised women as our core for the café training and working with young people within a setting targeting mainstream customers. Oitij-jo believes the women are skilled through their life experiences, knowledge and skills in cooking, managing a home and their children. TATI will be a professional kitchen and will be a positive safe environment for the women and young people to learn new skills, receive training and interact with wide range of customers who frequent Brick Lane.
