Sama'ila Tela Tailoring Business for At Risk Women - Fully Funded!

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

Because of your generous donation, Ismaila Adamu is now able to make an impact on her society in Bauchi. With these funds, she is now able to open a tailoring shop owned and operated by women. Currently, in Bauchi, women have few options for schooling and often don’t receive the proper training to be part of the workforce. As a result, women rely on marriage in order to survive. From this outlook, Ismaila believes that in order for women to be truly independent, they have to work and “have the freedom to find themselves.” She wants to improve the lives of women throughout Bauchi. Through her vision, she will change the lives of women “who were born with a desire to work and find love!”

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, creating this Sama’ila Tela Tailoring Shop will provide employment for at least five women. Each female employee will receive specialized training and have an area of focus, which will encourage employees to work together instead of compete within the same shop. We hope that this business will attract new customers from the Bauchi Community by offering new tailoring techniques from Abuja and Lagos, which are not typically practiced in Northern Nigeria. The goal of this project is to create a sustainable icon of what all women can achieve in Bauchi.

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 GlobalGivings reporting program. Of course, at anytime you can request a project update to learn up to date info on how this project is progressing. 

As a supporter of "Sama’ila Tela Tailoring Business for At Risk Women", 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 to develop our programs please contact me at mbailly@leadershipinitiatives.org. Your hard work and intelligence 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 on the ground, a project leader, one of our Business Alliance student participants, we would love to set up a Skype chat for you, so you can personally see the change you are creating. 

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

Sincerely,

Marshall

Murtala's Computer Repair Shop - Fully Funded

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

Because of your generous donation, Murtalas, a young entrepreneur, will achieve her dream of opening a computer repair center. This center will solve many of the local community’s basic computer repair needs at an affordable cost. Typically, computers are shipped out for repairs at a high cost. However, with the computer repair center, computers will be able to be repaired locally at a lower expense. Currently, computers have become a vital element of the Yewela community’s growth. However, the community’s advancement has been slowed due to their lack of computer repair options within the surrounding area. Basic or small repairs such as cooling fans breaking are adding to their slowed progress. For example, several schools have stopped purchasing computers and businesses have become less computer-based. From the opening of a computer repair shop, the Yewela community will be able to continue their growth and ultimately improve the outlook of their society.

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, through creating the computer repair shop, the center will offer computer training for local schools that currently cannot afford full time computer teachers, giving students their first experience with computers. Not only will this business help solve computer repair problems but it will also work to combat the lack of computer education programs within the local schools by offering computer education classes. This will allow schools that cannot afford full time computer teachers or computers to still teach students computer skills, which are almost necessary in all of the future job opportunities.

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.

Fully funded - AH Motorcycle Repair Shop

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

Because of your generous donation, the community of Makaranta will be able to create the AH Motorcycle Shop. The vast majority of this population is made up of petty traders, who do not have the specialized skills or training that most individuals should have in order to achieve the most basic elements of economic independence. With the incorporation of the AH Motorcycle Shop, the community will be able to provide necessary skills and income to young men who have no other alternatives. These skills are crucial for the surrounding community since most travel is done on motorcycle taxis. Additionally, this opportunity for income will help generate a higher standard of living for the local impoverished citizens throughout the community. Lastly, not only will this shop economically improve this community, it will also demonstrate to their youth that hard work and skills training are important in building a strong and successful future.

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, through creating the AH Motorcycle Repair Program, eight to twelve young individuals will be selected and apprenticed into an experienced tradesman. It will be expected that these individuals will complete a six month course of training. At the end, they will be fully prepared to set up shop independently or seek paid employment. The expectation is that five of the selected individuals will graduate from this program. Moreover, each participant will also be trained in business management skills, which will further open doors for them to seek employment within their community.

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.
