The Teenage girls empowerment in July of 2020 was a successful and pleasing event. We had more than 1200+ applications from brilliant and dedicated teen girls, age ranged from 13-20 with mostly 15 & 19 year olds applying. The event was sponsored by the foundation president. What bore and brought up this idea, was his passion and dislike for the vulnerable girl out there. His exact words “You know it really troubles me how much the teenage girl is endangered and vulnerable. It really hurts me to think there are people out there prying on such souls, like I can even bare to imagine what the average girl goes through. I have though of this, so as to make every girl out there know there’s someone in the dark watching and willing to shed light in their darkest moment, so help Me God, so help US God.” As God will have it, we worked on the process and strategy to be as fair as possible in the successful completion of the “teenage girls empowerment program”. We came up with this, and who so ever follows the process was bound to get a fair chance. We picked the girls based on the criteria listed, followed by a phone interview. The phone call were remarkable and thrilling, a lot of young ladies demonstrated the ability and zeal to be very young bright entrepreneurs. At the end we came up with a list of 12 girls instead of the initial 10 stated. This was born, due to the number and brilliant minds that could not be passed, but as you know there’s a limit to everything. If we had more support and financial power we would have done more. We ended the program and successful paid the chosen teen girls, with a follow up to come in 3 months to see who has done well and grown from where they use to be at the start. They have all being duly informed of the follow up program and we will give the best two (2) an opportunity to grow their business further. The criteria will be published at a later date. Thank all and thanks JMD family, God bless our efforts and give us the strength to carry on.
