My heart and mind has always been set on helping others, particularly young people. Covid-19 has caused so many of us to think about our careers and those ideas/ventures that we didn't have time to think about before. Now more than ever, I am seeing the youth strike out and start those businesses, myself being one of them! At the beginning of this year, I had it in my heart to start a business that would create/build a "community "amongst young people. With all these new businesses arising, I landed on the idea to create a safe space to bring them together, to support, elevate and inspire one another and motivate those who are looking to start their own business, but don't feel they have the means or potential. "THECONNECT" is aiming to facilitate safe and Covid law abiding events, due to the regulations, restrictions and wanting to keep people safe, we are asking for your support with the following:
PPE - Facemasks, Sanitising Stations, One way system stickers etc...
Venue - Securing a Venue that is large enough to accommodate social distancing.
"THECONNECT" not only want to get behind start-up businesses, we also want to support the youth with their CV's, University applications, and inspire them to think about their prospects/career choices with workshops. For this we are asking for support with:
Resources- Notebooks, Pens, Highlighters, Whiteboards etc...
The essence of "THECONNECT" is to build a strong and supportive community, where the youth can seek refuge and resources to walk in their greatness!
