The humble sweet potato takes centre stage in an Urban Adventure in Taipei, Taiwan.

The sweet potato is an important symbol of Taiwanese cuisine, and the women who serve up that tradition from their street stalls are known as Sweet Potato Mamas.

You can take a tour to visit the warehouse base of the Sweet Potato Mama industry and learn how this Genesis Social Welfare Foundation project trains and equips single mothers to start their own sweet potato business.

You will then join the Mamas during the lunchtime peak hour, helping them cook and serving the hungry crowd.

The cost is US$49 and all proceeds go to the Sweet Potato Mama Project.
