Starting and runnnjng @florastationery has always been a learning process. Visiting Kosovo last week brought a new lesson on trusting and seeing the goodness of the Lord. From cold e-mails that have created immeasurable impact to the innumerable stories of women who are killing the game when it comes to passionately pursuing their dreams, I am constantly challenged to see life and business in a new perspective. I am so thankful for this journey. . . ps. Sometimes the Lord puts a wrench in your plans and forces you to slow down, thanks to everyone who prayed for us while we were stranded in airports around the Balkans for three days. God is good - all the time. #fundingfutures

Kosovo has the highest unemployment rate in all of Europe and holds a female unemployment rate of over 56%. Yet, women with a university degree are over 28 times more likely to be employed than those with a basic education. Kosovo is also the poorest country in the region, with approximately 30% of the population living in poverty and another 10% who live in extreme poverty, living off less than one dollar per day. Will you help support university scholarships for these women? #fundingfutures#shopwithpurpose
We are very excited to announce we will be delivering the Sticking Together pilot program in Queensland after funding was confirmed by Queensland Treasurer, Hon Curtis Pit and Minister for Employment, Hon Grace Grace. The program will commence in early November and will see 90 jobseekers receive 1:1 mentoring and support for their initial 60 weeks of employment across 3 Queensland locations – Logan, Townsville and Cairns. The aim of the program is to work with long-term unemployed young people to build their skills, confidence and resilience to help them manage work-place situations and retain long-term employment. The pilot is currently running in South Australia and Victoria and great outcomes are being achieved for these young participants.
