Donating for a Better Restaurant in Nigeria!

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

 

Because of your generous donations, individuals and communities throughout Bauchi State will be able to forge the connections necessary to solve local problems using existing community resources. This will create a new generation of innovative, resourceful leaders poised to catapult their neighborhoods, regions, and nations forward. Donor contributions make it possible to provide promising individuals with entrepreneurial, leadership and project management training. These young leaders then identify obstacles to development within their own communities, design workable solutions, and create sustainable business models to overcome those obstacles. Leadership Initiatives partners with local government and business leaders to renew democracies on a grassroots level by cultivating self-reliant leadership. Lastly, Leadership Initiatives approaches the problems of underdevelopment by empowering communities to address their own needs, which will and 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 project will help Deborah’s restaurant and her goal to increase business through new advertisements.

 

Leadership Initiatives will be regularly providing updates and insight into the restaurant and this team's project as the months 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 “Stony Point High School Fighting for a Change”, 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 this team could best help this restaurant. Please contact Executive Director Marshall Bailly at mbailly@lichange.org or the project leader themselves (Kacy) at kacyalmartin@gmail.com. If you have any suggestions, questions, or comments! Your hard work and support 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 in Nigeria or this specific project leader, we would love to communicate with you so you can personally see the change you are creating.

 

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

Sincerely,

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 project will help an orphanage in Bauchi State come up with both educational and practical solutions to the problems that challenge it on a daily basis.

 

Leadership Initiatives will be regularly providing updates and insight into the orphanage and this team's project as the months 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 “Winona Sr. High School Fighting for a Change”, 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 this team could best help this orphanage. Please contact Executive Director Marshall Bailly at mbailly@lichange.org or the project leader themselves (Skye) at schusk20@students.winona.k12.mn.us . If you have any suggestions, questions, or comments! Your hard work and support is the greatest gift we could receive as we attempt to create a better world.

Uniting Students and Entrepreneurs for Success

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donors,

 

It is halfway through 2019, and our reach keeps expanding rapidly all thanks to those who support us. Due to this tremendous support, we have more IBIP teams and business partners than every before. We could have not done it without your kindness.

 

Therefore I would like to share a student's story of her experience with her business partner and how your contributions made this interaction (and interactions just like these) possible:

 

"My journey at Leadership Initiatives began two years ago when I attended the Global Young Innovators, Envision summer program at Emory University. There we were presented with a business from Nigeria which we would help during the entire week and at the end give a presentation of our solutions. Because of my great work here, I was able to start an IBIP team of my own. For the past year and a half, my team has been working with Ms. Deborah and Unity Restaurant, helping her improve the problems presented to us. Some of our solutions that we have been able to give to Ms. Deborah are a new logo, new business cards, new flyers, and re-designed menus. Currently, we are working on improving her delivery system."

 

From this student helping Deborah and her restaurant, she has been able to expand, and therefore have the resources to help others in her community. All of our business leaders that we partner with are dedicated community leaders who - if helped - will offer jobs and support to other people in their community. This creates a cycle of change that continues to help generations ahead. As long as we give these people the help that they need, they will make sure to use that gift to cause change themselves.

 

We thank you again to our donors and supporters because you truly make a big difference in our reach. By supporting us, you are supporting the people of sub-Saharan Africa who are grateful for your contribution. Your generosity has helped us create more job opportunities for both community adults with businesses and orphans. Change can happen anywhere at anytime - and by helping us, you are affecting lives halfway across the world. Thank you again for all that you do.

 

Thanks,

 

The Leadership Initiatives Team
