Summer Programs a Resounding Success

Dear Leadership Initiatives Leader,

Because of your support Leadership Initiatives was able to work with the top high school leaders from across the United States and connecting them with over 10 businesses creating solutions that will last for years to come.

Taught at Stanford and Harvard University we taught classing expanding the capacity of hundreds of high school students on a local and regional level throughout the world creating a new generation of leaders with a greater understanding and depth of experience in international development.

Student leaders were paired directly with business leaders from around the globe with a mission to assist in solving local development issues through business development, thus fostering cross-cultural collaboration that strengthens developing leaders in both nations. LI IBAP benefits students in the development of character, motivation and drive for the future.

This year students created new fish feeding methods for our fish farmers, new electrical repair techniques, new advertising plans for our tailors and advance the ability of our Irrigation farmers to feed local villages. 
This is all possible because of your support, you are helping us transform lives and build a brighter tomorrow. 
Through a generous donation by backers like yourself we have been able to capture this entire experience to showcase to you, our greatest supports. 
Please visit this site to see all of the student projects, ideas and videos of them presenting their solutions to our board, our staff and our development leaders in Nigeria. 
Once again we are all honored to be in your company and cannot thank you enough for your support.
Sincerely,
Marshall, Khalifa and the entire Leadership Initiatives family.

Thank you for helping build opportunity in Nigeria

In this report, Leadership Initiatives would like to introduce one of our Leadership Initiative’s Business Owners- Hamza.  Hamza’s story is one of LI’s most remarkable success stories. Hamza had nothing but a dream when he came across LI IBAP in 2009, but LI turned that dream into a celebrated reality!

A few years earlier, when LI initiated the Primary business creation program, Hamza was one of the welding business apprentices. He worked hard at learning all he could about welding because he had always loved it and LI had put the opportunity right in his hands.

Today, Hamza welders is one of the foremost welding business in the Yelwa Makaranta community in Bauchi state. His work is sought after by many and he keeps building on his designs with the help of the Harvard Envision leadership team. Hamza has been able to give back to his community by employing other young boys with dreams like he had, he now gives them the opportunity to make their dreams come through too.

Because of you, there are more jobs, orphans cared for and opportunities for communities in Nigeria. You can learn more at www.lichange.org or view the program pamphlet and follow Leadership on Facebook and subscribe to our new YouTube Channel. 

If you would like to know more about how your help has transformed the lives or people in Northern Nigeria, please visit our new website at www.lichange.org.

Thank you for helping young innovators in Nigeria

In this report, Leadership Initiatives would like to introduce one of our Leadership Initiative’s Business Owners- Muhammadu.  Kawu Irrigation farm is ran by Muhammadu, a resident of Bayara, Bauchi state. Muhammadu inherited this line of business and the lands from his father, irrigation farming has been a family business for them and he took over the work from his father.

He is very passionate about Irrigation farming, as he sees this as an opportunity to feed his community and also provide for his family all year round. Early 2013, he came in contact with LI and has since been working with LI on the secondary business creation program, to help expand his business and create bigger and better opportunities for him to increase and improve his crop production and community impact.

Muhammadu tells of how much impact the Business Alliance program with LI has changed the business he has known all his life and how much he has learnt from the Harvard program with brilliant business changing ideas from the participating students. The impact of the program has helped improve his business management skills, and also produce greater yield for his farm produce through improved soil fertility ideas from the Harvard Envision Leadership program students.

Because of you, there are more jobs, orphans cared for and opportunities for communities in Nigeria. You can learn more at www.lichange.org or view the program pamphlet and benefits sheet attached. 

If you would like to learn more about our business creation programs please visit our new website at www.lichange.org.  There you can find out about their personal stories, meet members of the community, view photo galleries, or even set up a Skype call with a business owner!
