Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,
Because of your generous donation, we have been able to unite hundreds of students worldwide for a great cause; to help many business owners all across Bauchi have business training to improve their innovative businesses like never before. These businesses are a statement of independence, for it is about the people of Nigeria saying they can control their own destinies, that they can provide for their families and loved ones, and no longer have to worry about providing educational resources and opportunities for their children and immediate family.
Furthermore, our students create novel solutions firmly grounded in principles of social entrepreneurship. We have previously helped businesses in Bauchi, Nigeria in; Counter Insurgency and Business Relations, technology and Innovation, Orphan Care, and Empowering Women. This project will help train new community university campus security, engineers and empowered women who will open up new shops, and new businesses which will initiate community improvement.
Many students created fantastic solutions, including one team which created a free and highly effective solution for the Maiduguri University of Nigeria’s Security Force. Rather than using costly CCTV cameras to fight petty theft at the campus, students proposed to enact an anonymous tip line. With the use of WhatsApp or any other cellular communication system, students and faculty can seamlessly be connected to security personnel. With Apps like WhatsApp, information that is sent is encrypted, making it a secure line. Security Guards on patrol at the University also have access to smart phones, allowing them to receive the tip from the Intelligence Officers. As a byproduct of using a cellular communication system, this can substitute the need for Walkie Talkies.
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 reporting program. Of course, at anytime you can request a project update to learn up to date info on how this project is progressing.
