Leadership Initiatives – The Next Generation is Here!
With the launch of the 2011 Poultry Farm program, it’s official - the next generation of leaders have stepped forward to establish a poultry farm - thanks to the inspiration, leadership, and financial investment of those who first completed the Leadership Initiative program and launched successful businesses.
Please look at the attachments below to the chicken farm program thriving and egg production underway, providing a vehicle for subsistence farmers to produce a valued product for the entire community while affording their families with opportunities for education and medical care.
Equally exciting - the leaders of this new enterprise are mostly family members of previous Leadership Initiatives programs! These “next generation” leaders have been inspired by the positive impact of the fish farming program and by their leaders, members of their families, who made it happen. The fish farming program has helped alleviate malnutrition and provided seed capital for new projects such as the poultry farms.
Ultimately, the vision of Leadership Initiatives is to enable an ever-expanding base of leadership and economic investment that builds from within the community. In the case of the poultry farmers, it’s exhilarating to see how this model of sustainable growth is working.
Leadership Initiatives businesses are creating new businesses and giving one another work, they are building a new core of leadership in Bauchi, and are a testament to what Leadership Initiatives and the leaders of the community can achieve.
While the resources for the fish farming program came from Leadership Initiatives, we are excited to see that our next generation of new businesses and new leaders are supported by resources largely from the first generation of leaders who were trained and empowered by Leadership Initiatives. The dream is now a reality!
