Fashion Store

My challenge for now is opening a very beautiful fashion store to attract women around me, it is also advocating for change in my community to provide women with new service by woman like a special discount for working women like employees, teachers and students in one of the shopping malls in Erbil to do so First, I need money to buy a place, a supplier outside to give me agency, and advertisement to make people know about it.
My reason for choosing this target is I am always working with patients ( Cancer Children ), others is all women issues for me to change environment around me I open women fashion store encouraging others to do business and empowerment too.
If I challenge for solving big problems I will work to set up Women Social Advising Center in future by help of government to solve women’s issue not let their issues get to level when it is too late to be solved.
Barriers are society attitude toward your action and convincing them to change mentality. Solutions towards these barriers are perseverance and work on setting your goals make them change but do not misunderstand change.

Good Point

I really liked your point about working on issues before it gets to the point that it is too late to solve anything. I think this is a very important point and one that needs to be factored into our approaches of working with and helping people.

Yes

Thank you in advance,

this is what I have observed in my community they know the issue , they set those issues of women forward but sometimes will be to late to solve them, in my society there are many traditional and tribal rules so what I thought Is that there should be a social advising place for women where social workers and professionals of societys issue can work on women's issue especially those related to family.
