Hope For Our Youth:4 New Youth Business Owners Empowered through Dare 2 Be Different Mission Mobilization Project
4 New Youth Business Owners Empowered through Dare 2 Be Different Mission Mobilization Project
"I am proud of your hardwork, your determination and continuous efforts to NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAM of using your talents to make your own dollar. Thank you for taking advantage of yet another creative effort of our ministry, to empower our youths.
Dare 2 Be Different Int'l is proud that you have made it this far. You are actually officially launching your businesses tomorrow." Those were the words of Dare 2 Be Different Int'l President, Khrystus Wallace on Thursday, 19th April, 2012 as he officially prayed and launched 4 Dare 2 Be Different Mission Mobilization (http://www.mmskn.org/) participants into the world of business.
The team was working together to do final touches on each of their businesses and remained totally excited that they had reached this far. "Work together! Stay together! Let us as Black Youth change the perception that exists. Black People can work as a team and can accomplish great things."
Wallace plans to use his business successes and failures to guide participants under his Mission Mobilization project. He stated that he wants young people to get the EXTRA help and guidance that he never got from organizations who boast and claim they are there to help young businesses. Certainly Far fromt he truth. Wallace stated that he had to learn the hard way and doesn't want them to experience his business mistakes at all, but cling to his triumphs.
Dare 2 Be Different Mission Mobilization Presents:
22 Year Old Joy "Lady Smilez" Codrington, who just two weeks ago had the privilege of taking over The Print Shop Franchise at KVK ENTERPRISES, used her god-given wisdom to open a store front business at Five Way, Central Street, Basseterre, St. Kitts. A smiling Codrington said, "in business, you have to be smart. I wanted my clothing business to move from my home and I also wanted KVK to have a presence in town again since I took over The Print Shop. Since I am at the head of the two busineses, I went searching and God provided just the right spot."
Codrington therefore opened her store called TAGDOWN SKN. It will be an agent for The KVK Print Shop and would allow customers to get instant prints in Basseterre again. Codrington plans to make some extra dollars braiding and styling hair on a small scale which is what she has been doing since she was 9 years old. Customers can have a glimpse of her Mission Mobilization Sponsored Webpage at http://www.tagdownskn.com/
Curtis Mulley, another Mission Mobilization participant and a professional artist by profession, joined the program to gain marketing exposure. Dare 2 Be Different Int'l was able to sponsor Mulley's website and help him establish a name for his business which is The Art Depot. http://www.theartdepotskn.com/. Since his start, Mulley has been getting more jobs to paint Murals on stores and Larger Businesss have been buying his Canvas paintings as gifts. It is Dare 2 Be Different's HOPE to assist Mulley in opening his own Art Gallery in the future as God provides the Capital.

Dare 2 Be Different Int'l Mission Mobilization, a gospel based Non Profit Organization certainly didn't discrimate when Joseph "Ilas" Butler, a Rastafarian, wanted to join the program to put some sort of structure to his many skills.
Mission Mobilization helped Butler form HANDYMAN SERVICES, which provides carpentry, masonary services to clients interested in getting smaller quick jobs done at a reasonable price. A smiling Butler, who at the time was cutting board for Joy's TAGDOWN store said, "This thing is good man. All I wanted was a GODFATHER - Someone to help me organize myself."
Wallace was keenly interested in his final Mission Mobilization Client, 11 year old Cavetha Yearwood of The Bronte Welsh Primary School, Baseterre, St. Kitts. This little girl remained helpful around http://www.kvkenterprises.com/ and could be called on to do help at anytime. Little Ms.Yearwood is now the proud owner of The SnackBox - a little business that would sell snacks to her friends and family in the community. Wallace plans to take her hand in hand because he remembered venturing into the world of business at age 11 too.
He hopes, that she would see this start given to her as something with great possibilities for her future. The team cheered when they learned that The SnackBox owner was already making her own money during the Easter Season and learning how to calculate profit and loss.
Each Mission Mobilization participant wins a Free Webpage at the end their training and guidance and Wallace goes on to start with new batches.
In closing, Wallace said, "This is how you turn a Global Economy in Crisis around, by empowering the young people to use their skills and make their own money in their own businesses because Small Business Enterprise contributes significantly to the growth and development of any economoy"
Wallace hopes that the government, private sector and/or accredited investors would see Dare 2 Be Different's efforts and chip in and help his Mission Mobilization Project both financially and with materials. Dare 2 Be Different raises its own funds to carry out many of the projects and activities it conducts. A simple way persons can support is by Emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org to order a Dare 2 Be Different Shirt - Adults - US$11.04 - Children - US$7.36
Wallace took the time out to recommend the four business owners to his international clientele and hoped that someone would see their simple ambition and probably partner with them or sponsor them materials or products at the start of their business.
Wallace's dream is to attract an international funding companies / accredited individuals that would be fully dedicated to offering outside the box alternatives to Youth Entrepreneurs across the Federation, Regional and the World who are apart of his Dare 2 Be Different Mission Mobilization Network.
