Are we reaching the right people?
Are there other services that we should be providing?
How can we do more?
Should we do it ourselves?
Who can we work with to be most effective?
These are some of the big questions being asked by our friends at The Olive Branch of Hope (TOBOH). Thanks to funding from Tropicana Community Services through the Supporting Black Canadian Communities Initiative (SBCCI) we are able to invite you to help us get answers to these questions.
We at Twenty One Fourteen Consultancy Services (2114 Consultancy) are leading The Olive Branch of Hope through a capacity building project where we first reach out to our shared community and beyond through various outreach methods. When our community sets our priorities and asks us where to focus, then we can decide what we are best able to do and where we need to partner with other organizations to fill the gaps. Based on this information, we will then design our strategic plan around a more targeted approach to meeting the identified needs of our community.
We are inviting you to participate in this tremendously groundbreaking work as a national nonprofit organization entirely focused on supporting Black women through a breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and life afterwards. While TOBOH continues the poignant research with McMaster University on why Black women are more prone to develop Triple Negative Breast Cancer, we also want to work closely with them to meet the day to day needs of these women.
Finally, thanks to our funders, we offer an honorarium of a $50.00CAD gift card from one of our supporters. These female entrepreneurs of African birth, descent and heritage have chosen to partner with us in support of The Olive Branch of Hope. Learn more about them below.

Nadia started #HERstoryBy2114 to create a digital space of solace for visionary women who feel as though they have gone through life trying to explain why they are so driven and that their drive isn't just for themselves to make the lives of others better.

Jahz started Genesis of Jahz at 4 (four) years old with a simple question to her mother: "Can we sell my earrings at the park?" She had already been making earrings for a year and knew her designs were really nice. Now the 9 year old kidpreneur has expanded into apparel to promote her soon to debut YouTube channel.
Jahz is happy to support The Olive Branch of Hope (TOBOH) because she is passionate about helping people. She's really happy about the new TOBOH Kids program that will help other children like her since her Mom is also a breast cancer sur-thriver.

Sophia created the first Soulful Colour affirmation coloring book out of a personal need for something meaningful to colour that reflected her experiences as a woman of colour. The approach at Soulful Colour is more than just colouring; it's a journey of diversity, inclusion, financial wellness, and positive self-talk. Their books feature original, culturally diverse illustrations, affirmations and quotes filling a gap in the colouring book world and appealing to both young people and adults.
Sophia is not a stranger to The Olive Branch of Hope (TOBOH) because of her personal connection through a close friend who is a 'SurThriver.'
Sophia "SoJay" Jackson
TOBOH has opened Sophia's eyes to the unique challenges women of colour face in their journeys with breast cancer. Sophia states, "TOBOH provides invaluable education that now I am equipped with to share with others. When I faced a scare during my own screening, the knowledge gained from TOBOH kept me grounded and reassured. The supportive community TOBOH offers is so needed and invaluable. This is why I'm happy to support TOBOH—it's a vital resource that not only educates but also creates a supportive community for women when they need it the most."Sophia encourages you to use your gift card to purchase both soft cover books.
Yaya's journey to create Libiki has been nothing short of fulfilling. It all started when she wanted to help a young woman in her mentorship program (Kids on the Mission to Excel). She had eczema and Yaya wanted to help her gain confidence in her own skin. Little did Yaya know that she was beginning to find and create a brand that offers unique, personalized products that make you feel and look confident in your skin.
Libiki is happy to support TOBOH because it provides individuals with the tools to confidently make the decisions that are right for them and their families while giving them hope for the future.
With a $50 gift card, you can treat yourself to Libiki's Luxe Smoothing hand cream collection. This collection is designed to give your skin the long-lasting nourishment and softening it needs during the cold months of the year. Treat yourself or a loved one to this pampering session for a truly memorable celebration.
