Thank you for helping build opportunity in Nigeria

In this report, Leadership Initiatives would like to introduce one of our Leadership Initiative’s Business Owners- Hamza.  Hamza’s story is one of LI’s most remarkable success stories. Hamza had nothing but a dream when he came across LI IBAP in 2009, but LI turned that dream into a celebrated reality!

A few years earlier, when LI initiated the Primary business creation program, Hamza was one of the welding business apprentices. He worked hard at learning all he could about welding because he had always loved it and LI had put the opportunity right in his hands.

Today, Hamza welders is one of the foremost welding business in the Yelwa Makaranta community in Bauchi state. His work is sought after by many and he keeps building on his designs with the help of the Harvard Envision leadership team. Hamza has been able to give back to his community by employing other young boys with dreams like he had, he now gives them the opportunity to make their dreams come through too.

Because of you, there are more jobs, orphans cared for and opportunities for communities in Nigeria. You can learn more at www.lichange.org or view the program pamphlet and follow Leadership on Facebook and subscribe to our new YouTube Channel. 

If you would like to know more about how your help has transformed the lives or people in Northern Nigeria, please visit our new website at www.lichange.org.

There you can find out about their personal stories, meet members of the community, view photo galleries, or even set up a Skype call with a business owner!

Also if you had a moment could you tell us why you donated and how you heard of us, we are always trying to better refine our message and reach more people with our call to change. Thank you for also helping us, understand wonderful people like you better!

Wishing you, your friends and especially your family the absolute best this Holiday Season!

Thank you for helping young innovators in Nigeria

In this report, Leadership Initiatives would like to introduce one of our Leadership Initiative’s Business Owners- Muhammadu.  Kawu Irrigation farm is ran by Muhammadu, a resident of Bayara, Bauchi state. Muhammadu inherited this line of business and the lands from his father, irrigation farming has been a family business for them and he took over the work from his father.

He is very passionate about Irrigation farming, as he sees this as an opportunity to feed his community and also provide for his family all year round. Early 2013, he came in contact with LI and has since been working with LI on the secondary business creation program, to help expand his business and create bigger and better opportunities for him to increase and improve his crop production and community impact.

Muhammadu tells of how much impact the Business Alliance program with LI has changed the business he has known all his life and how much he has learnt from the Harvard program with brilliant business changing ideas from the participating students. The impact of the program has helped improve his business management skills, and also produce greater yield for his farm produce through improved soil fertility ideas from the Harvard Envision Leadership program students.

Because of you, there are more jobs, orphans cared for and opportunities for communities in Nigeria. You can learn more at www.lichange.org or view the program pamphlet and benefits sheet attached.

Transforming the lives or orphans in Nigeria

In this report, Leadership Initiatives would like to introduce one of our Leadership Initiative’s Business Owners- Abdulhadi.  Abdulhadi's life changed forever about 6 years ago, when he came across LI Business Alliance Program. He was one of the first beneficiaries on the Tailoring skill acquisition program of IBAP. Since then, Abdulhadi’s life has been dramatically influenced and totally changed by LI’s direct impact on him and indirect impact on his family, friends and his community at large.

Abdulhadi is the first born of his family and the breadwinner since his father’s death. He has sponsored Himself and all his siblings in school from the income he makes from his business. He has also made tremendous impact in his community as his business employs about 20 people; who work as apprentice with the business. Some of those people include orphans, secondary school students; undergraduate and even university graduates who wanted to learn the tailoring skill and business.

Abdulhadi has built a strong reputation and a good name for himself within the community because of the number of jobs he provides. He is proud to be a part of LI and seeks to provide great opportunities for people in his community, the way LI has done for him.

Because of you, there are more jobs, orphans cared for and opportunities for communities in Nigeria. You can learn more at www.lichange.org or view the program pamphlet and benefits sheet attached along with our highlighted business partner Hamza's welding business.
