We’ll Help Ministries (WHM) has established Mingling, an empowerment project which  delivers holistic services to rural and marginalized people/communities, and empowering vulnerable persons/units – the unemployed, uneducated and maladjusted young people and; poverty-stricken single-headed households.

We’ll Help Ministries (WHM) was established in 1998 and registered as a Community-based Organization (CBO) in St Kitts & Nevis in September 2000, to assist the “poor and powerless”, “unbankable” and “uninsured” through spiritual, social and economic empowerment. Priorities are given to programs that emphasize mitigation, social adjustment, holistic personal management, youth empowerment and wealth creation.

Mingling targets the “poor and powerless”, “unbankable,” “uninsured” and unemployed through spiritual, social and economic interventions. Priorities are given to requests/programs that emphasize mitigation, social adjustment, holistic personal management, youth empowerment and household wealth creation.

The greatest beneficiaries of Mingling will be the rural marginalized, be it the ill-equipped school leaver, female-headed household and unemployed  and small and micro entrepreneur. Workshops, seminars, presentations and interactive sessions are used to:

  1. Build capacity for socio-economic adjustment
  2. Transform lives as individuals and households are given the skills to take control of their lives through the lesson learned from personal management, (including personal grooming, social etiquette, self esteem, self confidence, anger management and protocol), friendship and family life skills and health and wellness
  3. Break the shackle of dependence and powerless as individual and households learn how to use their creativity, cooperative and business philosophy and practice to empower themselves and create wealth.

 Mingling‘s holistic Social Intervention Strategy involves:

  1. Undertaking a Target Market  Analysis – to diagnose the need
  2. Identifying the Target Population by level of comfort
  3. Defining the Specific Needs to be addressed
  4. Establishing linkages with other Social Actors – to avoid inefficiency and waste
  5. Determining the Entry Point and Exit Strategy for each target group
  6. Commencing Program/Project Implementation
