Millennium Fellowship Project: Business Life-Skills Training
The Business Life-skills Training included two workshops, one in Kisauni and another in Mvita and each took two days. The first workshop in Kisauni was facilitated by Mr. Joseph Nazareth (Director of Lonamac (CBO) and Mr. Iqbal Omar (Equity
Bank representative), they taught how to come up with a business idea, plan, and budget. The twenty participants were then grouped into four (two boys and two girls) where they were required to discuss and come up with a business idea, plan, and budget. Each group was given fifteen minutes to present and then the facilitators judged the presentations by giving out their criticism and comments. For the second workshop in Mvita, only Mr. Joseph facilitated this activity. At the end of this activity, participants could skillfully deduce their business ideas and come up with a well-laid-out business plan and budget.
In the second workshop, YES alumnus (Omar Shee) conducted an outdoor activity where participants were paired, one role played a buyer and one a seller, the seller was supposed to sell a pen to the potential buyer. This was supposed to teach the
participants how they can market their goods to strangers with a good choice of words. The conclusion was that in the current world, the online market was a better platform but one on one marketing was an easy method to convince a customer and network.
Pamoja Tuimarike Youth Empowerment group (PATYE) volunteers, Angelo Sungu and Mwanamwinyi Juma facilitated youth groups creation and constitution writing and gave a background on PATYE group for both workshops 1( Kisauni) and 2 (Mvita).
