Secondary Technical Training Skills For Businesses

A microproject by Leadership Initiatives Vetted since 2010 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified


Provide secondary skills training for growing businesses in the Bauchi region to better develop welding, automobile repair, electrical repair and carpentry to better serve the growing community. In essence this will allow growing businesses a chance to obtain new skills to grow their projects, employ more people and change more lives.

Local skilled businesses are starting to fall behind as the Bauchi community grows and needs more technically skilled individuals. This program will create a new skills training program for local businesses and create the infrastructure necessary for them to create a pay as you go system so they will always be able to afford additional training for future skills and will work towards an equipment buying program as well.


By moving up the skills level of local businesses so they can offer better services, stay in business and offer lower prices to the growing community.

Long-Term Impact

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.
