Over the past 6 weeks, the young ladies from The Women’s Centre and Young Women’s Christian Association that dubbed themselves, Phenomenal Women United, showed significant growth in their approach towards art, their appreciation for their talents and the understanding that their efforts are what will yield results. Of course, there were some who learned faster than others, but in addition to learning artistic techniques, tips on entrepreneurship and customer service skills, they learnt how to have a sound work ethic and an appreciation for time management. They should never forget Suga telling them, “Time is money”.
Suga is extremely happy to report that the ladies’ artwork sold out at Craft Cart Jamaica’s Pop Up Village last Saturday at Campion Auditorium. The young ladies were grateful and felt a great deal of accomplishment for their weeks of hard work and efforts. The project was definitely a success reaping in a bit over $50,000JMD, of which the young ladies kept all the proceeds.
Thanks to the Rotaract Club of Kingston for choosing me to help spearhead this impactful project via GW Art, which falls under my brand Suga Lifestyle.
Many thanks to all who assisted with training the young ladies, helped in the marketing and promotions of this project and to those who stayed glued to our social media accounts, kept it buzzing with compliments and to all who supported the project with your purchases. You have contributed to the financial empowerment and independence of six young women with a promising future.
What’s next for them? They will continue their studies and a few plan to continue exploring the field of art.
Keep up with the New Kingston Rotaract Club by following them on Instagram @nkrcjamaica and if you are between the ages of 18-30 see how you can join them!
