Carpenters for a Better Bauchi

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

Because of your generous donation, Ibrahim Yu', a young entrepreneur can now build a better Bauchi. After decades of poor upkeep, many infrastructures created during colonial rule in the 1950s have begun to crumble. Ibrahim wants to create a local carpentry business to repair these decaying structures and build new furniture, doors, and windows; and to work with local LI electricians to bring lights back to these areas so they can continue to house the future of Bauchi for another 50 years.

Your donations have allowed Ibrahim Yu to finance our new project to "Create a Carpentry Business", which will create 6 new jobs in Nigeria; because of you this will now become a reality! These businesses are a statement of independence, it is about the people of Nigeria saying they can control their own destinies, that they can provide for their families and loved ones, and no longer have to worry about providing educational resources and opportunities for their children and immediate family.  

Because of you and your generosity, we have been able to 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 (LI) approaches the problems of underdevelopment by empowering communities to address their own needs. LI partners with local government and business leaders to provide promising individuals with entrepreneurial, leadership and project management training. These young leaders then identify obstacles to development within their own communities, design workable solutions, and create sustainable business models to overcome those obstacles.

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 Leadership Initiatives, we 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 try 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
