Survive Strive Thrive, Inc was developed after years of a mother of 10 struggling to run a flower business selling bouquets on street corners, setting up vending tables at flea markets, and doing whatever was necessary to grow my business.  Finally, in 1990, I had enough money to open a storefront in a low-income neighborhood.  I was able to keep my children away from crime by keeping them busy with the flowers. However, I could not ignore the youth in the community asking for jobs.  I formed a youth entrepreneurial program.  I taught the youth business ethics, public relations, and marketing.  It was a joy to see hope and confidence and the desire to be productive grow in these young people who previously had no other economic outlet to look to except being a drug dealer.

Meanwhile, I struggled to find ways to market the flower business so that enough income could come in to keep the business afloat.  Looking around, I saw a lot of entrepreneurs in the same boat.  Bank loans (access to working capital) and savings were two things these businesses did not have.  I saw a need for an expo for micro businesses to introduce their business to the community.  I also saw a way to bring the youth together with the expo where they could be exposed to entrepreneurs and ignite their business sense.  

The idea of combining the youth, community, businesses, musicians, artists, speakers, and activities into an expo has created a win-win event that enhances everyone involved.  However, the lack of funding to hold these events remains a very serious drawback.  Funds are needed for entertainers to be hired to draw the community in. Hiring entertainment provides work for the struggling artist in our community.  Our event, when properly funded, gives a stipend to the youth volunteers along with the education they receive being involved with the expo.  When properly funded our event creates an economic boost for over 70 entrepreneurs.  Throughout the event, the focus of Stopping the Violence by building economics is portrayed in all of the activities of the expo.

Another mission that we have at SST, Inc is providing CARE PACKAGES for 1st-time low-income college students.  Our CARE PACKAGES are packed with sheet sets, blankets, towels, storage units, and toiletries to help new college students with moving into the dorm.  Our target audience for the CARE PACKAGES are graduating youth who live in homeless shelters and are going off to college.  Here is a clip from our last CARE PACKAGE giveaway.

We are asking that you make a donation to assist us in carrying on with this work.  Following is a clip to show how the money will be used.  We will be able to pay for our venue to hold the event.  We will be able to give each of our 30 youth volunteers a stipend for their work.  Your donation will allow us to hire entertainment so that we can draw the community in to shop with our entrepreneurs.  We desperately need your help for our event coming up October 15 & 16 go to Phila Locz Hairshow and Business Expo 2022

Huriyyah Bey left the corporate world to be an at home mom for her 10 children. Her non profit venture started after opening a family flower business an impoverished North Philadelphia area.
