Team building and collaborations provide a great foundation for prosperity. The DRFN offers valuable support to Skoonheid in preparation for COSDEF’s - OYETU program to  launch a two year leather craft technical and business skills project.

Forty-two resident stakeholders participated in a two day workshop where our DRFN Peace Corps Volunteer presented business development training in preparation for submitting bids for catering services.  

Resettlement communities have voiced their readiness and hopes for this type of opportunity. Shifting the tide away from using outside sources, capable resident stakeholders demonstrate commitment to strengthen economic development for marginalized communities. 

For two days participants “rolled up their sleeves” and did the necessary teamwork to arrive at a great plan to provide well organized, high quality catering services. Most impressive was the wide range of ages and cultural identities – working respectfully and productively together in hopes of bringing income to motivated residents who have long awaited access to these opportunities.

Interagency collaboration and community teamwork may be the springboard from beneficiary to self-supporting prosperity for otherwise marginalized people with limited opportunity for the future.
