Donations for a Growing Restaurant in Nigeria

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

 

Your donations will empower individuals and communities across Bauchi State, Nigeria, giving them the opportunity to form connections and address local issues using community resources. This will create a generation of leaders given the platform to encourage progress that starts at the local level but impacts many more. Contributions from donors give promising individuals access to entrepreneurial, leadership, and project management training. These leaders then identify developmental obstacles within their communities, design practical solutions, and create sustainable business models to overcome those obstacles.
 

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.

 

Stony Point High School has partnered with this business and hopes to provide its staff with solutions to issues relating to advertisement and customer service. Your encouragement of Stony Point High School and their project will truly help change lives across the globe, as this will aid Deborah in following her passion to serve her community.



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 if you have any suggestions, questions, or comments! Your 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,

 

Leadership Initiatives

Connecting Students and Entrepreneurs for Success

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donors,

 

We are more than halfway through 2019, and our reach keeps expanding rapidly all thanks to all of our supporters. 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.

 

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 encourage significant change in their communities. 

 

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 communities in sub-Saharan Africa who are grateful for your contribution. Your generosity has helped us create more job opportunities for both adult business owners 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
