WoW ! This is fun.
Ms Faridah, one of the teachers in charge of the YEG, was on hand to ensure that there is quality control.

Altogether, 1000 bottles of Shoo Mozzie were produced using the money provided by the Coyote Funds. Shoo Mozzie, an all natural insect repellent, was developed by the environmental NGO Cicada-Tree Eco Place (CTEP). With the support of the Coyote Funds, CTEP now can sell the Shoo Mozzie at a lower price so that more people can benefit from the use of natural insect repellent.
We have to thank Mr Lai whose company did not charge us GST and provided all the ingredients at cost so that we can keep the price low.
We will be promoting the Shoo Mozzie is Sunday. Here are the details

The Citibank-YMCA Youth for Causes programme started in 2003. Besides empowering young people to create businesses that serve a social cause of their choice, the programme also provides an element of education and training.
Some of us YEGs from Mayflower came up with a great business and at the same time wanted to help an environmental Non Profit Organisation, Cicada Tree Eco Place (CTEP) with the money we can earn.
We have been helping to promote an all natural insect repellent developed by CTEP at three events in February and April. Sales were good but the greatest challenges we faced were having not enough funds to produce more Shoo!Mozzie.
At each event, we could only sell twenty bottles as we only have enough funds to produce these small quantities.
So in April, we decided to apply for more funds to expend our business and on the 3rd of May, we were at the YMCA pitching our business ideas to the panel of judges. We were only informed four days earlier that we have been shorted listed. While preparing for our mid-year examination, we took time of to prepare our presentation.
On 13th May, we were happy to receive the news that we have been selected to be a participating team of Citibank-YMCA Youth For Causes 2008.
We will be at the official launch and the details are below.
