`This cookie won’t crumble’


 8 March 2013
During 2012, third-year medical students from the UFS became involved in a community project at Lebone Village, a home for HIV infected and affected orphans in Bloemfontein.

A key element of this project was the sustainability the project had to offer. The medical students decided to take up cookie baking. They explored recipes and trained the volunteers at Lebone to perfect the recipes to the last crumb.

The cookies will be packaged in sachets that were also designed by the students. The UFS’s logo will be printed on the back of the packet and distributed across the country. The cookies will be a source of income for Lebone and also market the organisation.

The cookies scheme will form a lasting foundation on which the UFS’s name can be built and from which the community can gain. It will also display the great heights the UFS’s students are capable of reaching and the creative potential of the youth of this country.
