2014 LI will start soon because of you!!!!

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

Because of your generous donation, young leaders throughout Bauchi State have been able to develop independent profit-generating businesses that serve as models for growth in surrounding communities. Donor contributions made it possible to for the Regional Business Education Program Center to offer business training which gives businesses the resources needed to expand, employee more people and solve local problems with development. Young women and men who have pushed the boundaries of their community to solve local problems through business initiatives will now receive the training to expand their ideas across their region to build a brighter Nigeria. Lastly, project beneficiaries fill voids in the local economy while improving their families' health, education and financial stability, which will eventually aid in making Nigeria a stronger and more democratic nation.

Our students create novel solutions firmly grounded in principles of social entrepreneurship. We have previously created in Bauchi, Nigeria businesses in: fish farming, welding, tailoring, motorcycle repair & computer education with job placement. Currently, this Regional Business Education Program Center in Bauchi offers classes to teach leaders financial, personal and business management. It also serves as a resource for problems and questions that arise. In essence this program will provide a 2nd year of regional business training allowing businesses that are currently successful to open up new shops in the surrounding region changes hundreds of lives.

Because of you and your generosity, we have been able to continue our efforts and develop independent profit-generating businesses that serve as models for growth in surrounding communities. Project beneficiaries fill voids in the local economy while improving their families' health, education and financial stability. Previous leaders have sent their brothers, sisters and children to school, helped invest in new businesses within the community, offered new services to community members such as the disabled, establishing infrastructure for the future growth of Nigeria.

Leadership Initiatives will be regularly providing updates and insight into these projects as the month's progress through GlobalGiving's reporting program. Of course, at any time you can request a project update to learn up to date info on how this project is progressing.

As a supporter of “Regional Business Education Project”, Leadership Initiatives would love to have you involved if you ever want to help grow our programs, learn of ways you can participate or have new ideas on how to develop our programs please contact me at mbailly@leadershipinitiatives.org. Your hard work and intelligence is the greatest gift we could receive as we attempt to create a better world.

Thank you once again from the bottom of everyone's heart here at Leadership Initiatives. If you would ever like to speak to our staff on the ground, a project leader, one of our Business Alliance student participants, we would love to set up a Skype chat for you, so you can personally see the change you are creating.

Wishing you, your family and your friends the absolute best!

Sincerely,

Marshall

Classes Start In Three Weeks!!!!

Dear Phenomenal Leadership Initiatives Supporters, 

2013 has been a transformational year for Leadership Initiatives. We now have created 46 businesses and counting in Nigeria. Leaders are springing up not just in Bauchi but throughout the entire nation who wish to take part in our programs. 

In 2014 we will launch our new website where you as a supporter can see each business you helped make possible. You will be able see the business mission statement, the bio of the owners and through one of our greatest champions Omnilearn, you will be able to see the statistics of each our businesses. 

With our new system you will see the average salary employees, how many children are going to school now because their parents or family members have gainful employment and how many orphans each business now supports. 

Each report will also detail how much each business is earning, if they have paid off their loans, how much they are reinvesting in the community and how much they are reinvesting within themselves. 

In essence you will see not only through pictures, videos but now statistically how you are building a better world. 

New fall classes will be starting in a month and we will have much more to report then but for now feel free to email me at mbailly@lichange.org. If you would like to speak to a business owner, an employee, an orphan whose life you have changed or if you have an idea on how to make Leadership Initiatives a stronger organization. 

I am looking forward to all of us growing together as a family of people who believe in change and one another.

Wishing you all a great week and honored by your support,

 

Marshall

New Jobs Being Created Now

Dear Leadership Initiatives Donors,

I am happy to announce that every Leadership Initiatives business has taken on one apprentice and each of our businesses has graduated one apprentice from their programs. So we currently have trained in the last 18 months alone 96 new skilled works, who now have the ability to gain full time employment. 

Each business has continued to expand and train new individuals and to ensure their continued education Leadership Initiatives has worked with each business to give each apprentice a training schedule to ensure they are learning at a proper rate and never taken advantage of (slavery through apprenticeship is a common problem within Northern Nigeria). 

What we would love for you to do as a donor is to connect to one newly employed man or woman with a skype call or email correspondence so you can see just what impact your donation is making within the world. You are changing lives!!!!

As always if you have new ideas on how to improve our programs we would be honored to hear from you at mbailly@lichange.org. Your mind is the best gift you can give us!

Wishing you a happy Halloween next week and once again thanking you for your support from the bottom of all of our hearts,

 

Marshall
