Dear Danielle
Thanks , we have the ability to reach further and it depends how we get resources and remember that where we are working (Somalia) youth needs are large thus in dire need to be glanced. SYDF is working across the interactive Conflict about the life-saving work for Peaces though Somalia which is ranked the least peaceful place on earth and the armed violence shows no signs of abating.this is a nation which is coming from ashes to all level and all above are priorities.

Thanks

I truly adore the work that you are doing and I think that it has the ability to reach further. I do know that finances are somewhat problematic across the board for any young entrepreneur and therefore I agree on the fact that you should focus on one sector at a time in order to yield even greater results. I support your initiative and do continue the good work. please don't hesitate to read and comment on my idea also https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/members/daniellehwafe007/ideas/my-ideas/2963/

Empowering youths is a really good initiative. You helped them to get skills and to get funds to launch their own business, and it's awesome. It seems that your ong cover a large range of sectors, maybe it will be better if you focus on one sector (for example, health education) and use all your ressources on it. By doing that, you will get expertise, relationships in that field and it will be easy to gain trust of potentials investors or companies. And at the end, you Will be able to expand your program and reach more youths.
Good luck.

It is a good initiative to provide a sustainable program that can grow the competitiveness of a country.Providing youths with not just skills but an after support eco system to grow and benefit financially from what was learnt is a good step for growth.I know one of the major issues shall be financing so SYDF should find efficient ways to create products or services that will appeal not just to your local area but elsewhere.By doing that you can solicit more grants and microfiancing to continue the growth of your organisation.Continue doing the good work and I hope when my idea UrClickcast comes live you can utilize it as a platform to grow your work.Check it out at https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/4/2637/ comment and help us make it better to serve you.Great work and much success.
