Supporting Entrepreneurship in Nigeria

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donors,

 

We are fresh into 2020, and our reach keeps expanding rapidly thanks to those who support us. Due to this tremendous support, we have more (over 100!) IBIP teams and business partners than ever before. We could not have 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 possible:

 

"My journey at Leadership Initiatives began [three] years ago when I attended the Global Young Innovators summer program at Emory University. There, we were presented with a business from Nigeria which we would help during the entire week and ultimately 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."

 

Because this student had the opportunity to help 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 also dedicated community leaders who - if helped - will offer jobs and support to members of 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 send thanks again to our donors and supporters because you truly make a big difference in our reach. By supporting us, you are supporting the people across the globe who are grateful for your contribution. Your generosity has helped us create more job opportunities for both community adults with businesses and orphans. Ultimately, we wish to use donations to create a platform for hopeful business owners in Nigeria. Change can happen anywhere at anytime - and by helping us, you are affecting lives halfway around the world. Thank you again for all that you do.

 

Thanks,

Donations for a Fish Farm in Nigeria

Dear Benevolent Donors and Contributors,

 

Leadership Initiatives would like to thank you again for everything you’ve done to support this team. As you’re all aware, nonprofit organizations are so reliant on (and grateful for!) the benevolence of supporters like you to help us in our mission. This close relationship between our success and your personal generosity is why we cannot overstate how much we appreciate both your financial and emotional support.

 

Although our working relationship with Shehu, the fish farmer with whom this team is collaborating with, is not new, your donations still mean the world in implementing the solutions that have been developed in the past. Even the smallest contributions mean the world of difference to us, Shehu, and the people who rely on his services every single day. Without your help, Shehu would never have been able to make it to where he is now, and we can’t wait to see what your contribution will bring him in the future. Your encouragement of the Onondaga Jr/Sr High School and their goal to help Shehu will better his fish and, thus, his business overall. Currently, the biggest issues being faced involve the quality of their habitat and the overall health of his fish, and solving these problems will benefit his business.

 

As we’ve mentioned before, we’d love your input or suggestions on how this team can best aid the busness. We here at Leadership Initiatives are nothing if we are not propelled by an environment of creativity, and your ideas may very well be the next solution needed to truly change lives. Please contact Executive Director Marshall Bailly at mbailly@lichange.org to them your insight or to learn more about the steps being taken to help this business. Again, we couldn’t do it without you!

 

Wishing you and your family a wonderful day,

Supporting a Small Business in Bauchi

Dear Benevolent Donors and Contributors,

 

Leadership Initiatives would like to thank you again for everything you’ve done to support this team. As you’re all aware, nonprofit organizations are so reliant on (and grateful for!) the benevolence of supporters like you to help us in our mission. This close relationship between our success and your personal generosity is why we cannot overstate how much we appreciate both your financial and emotional support. 
 

Over this past summer, students at LI's International Leadership and Business Summit (ILBS) worked with the orphanage to establish new methods of educating the orphans, providing them with the opportunity to learn various subjects while still having fun. Now that the academic year is back in session, this partnership is now in the hands of students involved in the International Business Internship Program (IBIP), expanding this initiative over the course of the next year.

 

Donations to Washington-Lee High School's partnership with the orphanage will not only help maintain the orphanage itself, but will also go toward the team's ongoing project intended to teach the orphans invaluable hygenic practices through engaging videos approved by doctors. Your encouragement of the Washington-Lee High School and their goal to help this orphanage is truly changing lives across the globe. 


As we’ve mentioned before, we’d love your input or suggestions on how this team can best aid the orphanage. We here at Leadership Initiatives are nothing if we are not propelled by an environment of creativity, and your ideas may very well be the next solution needed to truly change lives. Please contact Executive Director Marshall Bailly at mbailly@lichange.org if you have any suggestions relating to this project. Again, we couldn’t do it without you!

 

WIshing you and your family a wonderful day,
