Jobs Created Because Of You

Dear Dedicated Leadership Initiatives Supporter,

I am honored to write you this email and thank you from the bottom of my heart. 2015 was perhaps our greatest and most challenging year. The Nigerian elections coupled with the Boko Haram unrest caused our programs to be delayed and many of our business owners to be unsure of their futures.

Because of your dedication, your heart and most of all your support we have come out of this spring and summer a more cohesive and stronger organization. Because of all of your actions we were able to come together as a family and support all of our brothers and sisters in their time of need.
Let me highlight the community impact of one business you helped survive this difficult time. Elizabeth owns a mobile tailoring/textile shop. Her business has contributed to the community by allowing people to express their creativity with materials and designs while still maintaining some of the more traditional cultural styles.

Elizabeth also stands out among her community as a leader by hiring young women and encouraging them to become leaders.

Her success has shown women how they can take charge of their lives and support their community. She also showcases young women and men who attend school and have been taken in by her and her employees.

This has resulted in additional attention and support, and has encouraged other business owners to participate in the Orphan Care program so that one day these children can provide for themselves and their families.

Once again none of this would have been possible without you.

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.

We would love have you involved with Leadership Initiatives 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@lichange.org. Your hard work and intelligence is the greatest gift we could receive as we try and create a better world. 

Wishing you, your family and your friends the absolute best this fall!!!!
Sincerely,

Marshall

Lives transformed because of your support!!!

Dear Devoted LI Supporter, 

I am so proud to tell share with you the success of our Literacy Training program and how the success of key business owners receiving literacy training has allowed to exponentially grow and provide more for their communities, their families and themselves. 

Over the course of the last year Raibu and several others have learned to write in English and are now communicating with Leadership Initiatives International Business Alliance Program students. 

Together they are creating new solutions to problems Raibu is facing and creating new ways to create an even stronger and ever growing electrical grid. Raibu is now able to read instructions and ideas sent to him by students to teach him new ways to repair and construct electrical wiring and components. 

Below is Raibu's effect on the community because of the your generous donation and support. 

Rabiu’s Electrical shop has connected multiple homes and businesses to the Bauchi electrical grid and has worked to restore old buildings and structures so they can support electrical devices. The impact of these efforts cannot be overstated. Because of Rabiu and his team’s efforts, jobs have been created throughout Bauchi and more families can benefit from everything that a home with power has to offer.

Rabiu also sells electrical equipment including televisions, stereos, lighting products and more. This is especially important because many people in his community lack the transportation necessary to travel to other areas that sell these products.

Rabiu’s Electrical shop also does pro-bono work restoring and connecting electricity for those who cannot afford his services, allowing their families to grow even when they are struggling economically.

Rabiu has also taken in six young teens and helps provide for their food, board, education and skills training so they can one day find employment in the field of electrical repair.

Thank you for transforming lives with us,
Sincerely,
The entire LI Family
