Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,
Because of your generous donation, women throughout Bauchi State have been able to bring their ideas for local businesses to the community forefront and then receive training with the skills necessary to create, found and operate a business with local investor support. It was possible for Leadership Initiatives to locate and inspire young women leaders in the local communities because of donor contributions that provided basic business training for women leaders in the community. Lastly, the women are also going to be creating businesses of their own design. These women will be designing and founding new businesses to tailor to the needs of their communities, 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. Previously, Women in Bauchi had few options for schooling and often could not receive the proper training to be part of the Bauchi workforce. Because of this women often have to marry so they could survive. Currently, through offering promising women leaders with entrepreneurial, leadership and project management training in Bauchi State young women will be financially independent for the first time in their 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. Projectbeneficiaries 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 projectupdate to learn up to date info on how this project is progressing.
