first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Ora Barclay-Keller tells young women entrepreneursMrs. Ora Barclay-Keller, Founder and CEO for Girls for ChangeSMART Liberia, a non-profit organization, on Friday, June 16, held its first Town Hall event to celebrate, empower and support Young Women Entrepreneurs through panel discussions, trade fair and musical performance.Delivering the keynote address was Mrs. Ora Barclay-Keller, founder and Executive Director for Girls for Change and Founder/CEO for Le Mirage International a fashion design enterprise. She advised the young women to believe in themselves, respect the work of others, work hard and never take no for an answer.Explaining her success story, Keller said she started her career at age six while living with her mother. “I started designing clothes, because my mother was a seamstress and I would take all the cut-offs, design them and put them on dolls.Barclay-Keller says she started a joint mentorship group with young girls in her community on the importance of health and hygiene and adult literacy program. The organization is called Girls for Change and was founded in 2013, holding regular sessions with girls on her front porch. “Later, I worked with the Ministry of Agriculture for three years and all my salary was used to develop the organization and bring it to where it is today,” she explained.To compensate the girls, Keller said she provided gari (farina), sanitary pads and soap to the girls at the end of every month, which kept them coming.“One of the major business problems we have as young women entrepreneurs is start-up funds. That is why you should do more networking and promote one another, engage in joint venture businesses and build yourselves up”, Keller noted. “Women should patronize and respect the work of each other.”Speaking earlier was Mrs. Kula Thompson-Williams, one of the panelists and training manager at Building Markets. She stressed the importance of female entrepreneurs being offered Training of Trainers (TOT) opportunities. “TOTs affirm the presence of skill,” she said, “but offers the advantage of training or teaching others, which sustains learning; increases turnover of newer and better-equipped entrepreneurs; focuses on innovation for local entrepreneurs, because women are good at multitasking.“If you don’t have the experience, you still have the advantage”, she added.She encouraged them to do more networking, which brings mentorship and that they should “do what you can do, which no one else can do,” stressing the importance of being unique.Williams has more than 14 years’ experience developing entrepreneurs. “I opened my first legal business after graduating High School at 16 years old and this equates to 25+ years as an entrepreneur,” she told the gathering.Products of Naz Natural and Bosh Bosh on display for sale at the SMART Liberia Town Hall eventThe program climaxed with musical performance by Project Fame West Africa 20132ndrunner-up, Margaret Cephas, and a trade fair comprising over ten female entrepreneurs in their twenties through early thirties.One of the entrepreneurs, Joy E.

SADNESS AS LETTERKENNY PIPE BAND WITHDRAWS FROM PARADE DUE TO LACK OF PIPERS

first_imgIT’S one of Donegal’s most famous marching bands – with world championships to their name – but the Letterkenny Pipe Band has been forced to miss St Patrick’s Day for the first time in its history due to lack of players.“Unfortunately we will not be taking part in any parades this year due to a lack of players,” said band founder Mervyn Elvin.Formed in 2000 by Mervyn Elvin, the band has taught many young people of the area both bagpipes and drums. Crowning glory for the band came in 2009 when the band were crowned World Champions in Grade 4a.Unfortunately, since 2009, emigration, college, work and family commitments have resulted in a drop in numbers for the band.Said Mervyn: “It will be the first year in the history of the band that we will not be taking part in any parades, having taken part in our local parade in Letterkenny every year since the band was formed.“We hope you all have a good day wherever you are.”  SADNESS AS LETTERKENNY PIPE BAND WITHDRAWS FROM PARADE DUE TO LACK OF PIPERS was last modified: March 17th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:emigration numbersLetterkenny Pipe Bandlast_img read more

first_imgA total of 19 businesses in the small Inishowen village of Muff have come together to boycott Israeli goods.Cllr Jack MurraySinn Fein Councillor Jack Murray has commended the business community in the area.Councillor Murray said “I want to commend the business people in Muff who have made a principled stand against the recent Israeli assault on Gaza. People here were horrified by the images of Israeli air strikes and troops killing thousands of Palestinian civilians – hundreds of whom were children. “As such a group of local residents came together to lobby local businesses and ask theme to stand with Palestinian and boycott Israeli goods.“The feedback was fantastic and some 19 businesses agreed to sign up and refuse to sell Israeli products. This stand is reminiscent of the Irish boycott of South African goods during the apartheid era there.“I hope that this stand can be repeated throughout Ireland again and pressure can be put on Israel to recognise the human rights of the Palestinian people and finally lift the blockade.’MUFF BUSINESSES START CAMPAIGN TO BOYCOTT ISRAELI GOODS was last modified: September 3rd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:boycottCllr Jack MurrayInishowenIsraelmufflast_img read more
