These are the faces of some of the children I’ve been working with at Parada Romania from Bucarest. With the wonderful help of Mark Doyle from Tribe Magazine and the valuable help of Jerry Padfield for the audio, we’ve created a multimedia piece that will be ready soon. This work will show the children’s perspective of the life at Parada and the activities they make and help they receive to overcome the harsh reality of having to live in the streets and being on the fringes of society.

However, this is a place of creativity, integration, ambition and hopeof becoming respected people in the Romanian society.

Yana Spencer, founder of Tamu Bakery, a charitable personal project with which she helps to raise funds for campaigns to end Female Genital Mutilation in the UK and abroad,  will travel in May to visit a centre in rural Kosovo to help women survivors of wartime rape.
You can help with a cake order from Tamu Bakery here:
https://www.facebook.com/TamuBakery
or Yana can offer talks and lectures about her role within her humanitarian projects developed over the last years.
From a journalist role in her native Ukraine, in the UK Yana has reinvented herself as a BME (black and minority ethnicity) rights activist, which is really similar to journalism, because it involves working with people and for people. Forced marriages, FGM (female genital mutilation), human trafficking and migrant workers rights - all issues she is passionate about in Cornwall.
Inspired by an old folk tale about a woman who chose to run with the wolves in order to get in touch with her more natural and genuine instincts, Yana combines two passions in one - helping to empower women through the therapeutic effects of baking. Every cake she creates is a story, reminding her of all the wonderful people and places she has met and visited… And if she could choose a flavour of a cake to describe herself it probably will be strawberry and banana one with a light coconut cream and unexpected hint of cinnamon.
