Summary

Leadership Initiatives business owners have transformed their communities by creating fishfarming projects to feed the poor, electrical shops to create and bring power back to villages, welding programs have created and rebuilt dilapidated homes. This was all accomplished by young community leaders and business owners who do not speak English but Hausa and have had problems expanding their changes to new neighborhoods because of a language barrier, this project will break that barrier down.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Business owners cannot expand their businesses because they do not speak English. All business transactions are completed in English and new markets with English speakers are almost impossible to expand to without some literacy and language training. This Problem is prevalent mostly among youth employees. This project will directly address youth literacy training to improve their ability to gain employment or better support their business sponsor.

How will this project solve this problem?

Training 15 young business owners with basic English and language skills over the next year. Offering assistance courses to their staff for the next year. Creating language cards for business employees to use when making business transactions with English speakers benefiting over 100 young employees. This will allow additional youth to gain access to employment and encourage other youth to come to Leadership Initiatives for Literacy and job training when creating new businesses within Bauchi

Potential Long Term Impact

Continued growth of young leaders and expansion of their ability to transform their nation and country. These leaders will also continue to teach their families what they learn breaking down community barriers that have kept them apart.
