Heaven Flight operates on the principles of
Ecclesiastes 11 : 2 &11
Ship your grain across the sea;
after many days you may receive a return.
2 Invest in seven ventures, yes, in eight;
you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.
11 Give generously, for your gifts will return to you later. 2 Divide your gifts among many,[a] for in the days ahead you yourself may need much help.
The clients are not required to pay back for the containers that are built. They will be gifted the services and if and when they are able to earn an income they will pay it forward to someone else through our Entrepreneurship and/or Outreach Programs. The objective of the Outreach Program is to help women who are already working in the streets as a entrepreneur and, those involved in prostitution, sex trafficking and/or who are homeless to achieve Entrepreneurship . The Outreach Programs of Heaven Flight desire to be a bridge for those who can't find or get long-term help. This is where we can help!
Heaven Flight will provide these women with the businesses they desire through our Outreach Programs. We will provide and use the business as leverage to get the women off the streets. We will provide the land, the building and the container for them. Without a proper container (building) to host their businesses most women give up on the hopes of real Entrepreneurship. They have seen women in their communities work hard like this and still earn very little money to sustain themselves. Yet, some do it because they must and it’s a step up from what they are used to. These women desire the ability to feel good! The ability to own something of their own without having to pay for it upfront or every month. They desire to live integral and with the dignity that so many of them have lost. Can you imagine the pride they will feel from having and growing their own business? Can you imagine the sense of esteem they will feel from having to hire someone instead of being hired?

Most understand the hard life of selling items with a basket on their head. They desire more. The way we see it is, if you just provide clothes to them or items for them to sell in the street with a basket on their head they find that life very hard.

With a diversified and multi-dimensional background, she is surely changing lives Her background’s diversity includes being gifted with a creative and an inventive spirit. Her early days are reminiscent of learning how to sew early in her life. Her mother Barbara Dash who was a tailor, provided her with her first sewing machine at the age of 9.
