Beneficiaries working in carpentry workshop
Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,
Because of your generous donation, individuals throughout Bauchi State have been able to move up the skills level of local businesses so they can offer better services, stay in business and offer lower prices to the growing community. Donor contributions made it possible to 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. Local skilled businesses were starting to fall behind as the Bauchi community grows and needs more technically skilled individuals. This program has created 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, which will and eventually aid in making Nigeria a stronger and more democratic nation.
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 this project has allowed growing businesses a chance to obtain new skills to grow their projects, employ more people and change more lives.
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 GlobalGiving's reporting program. Of course, at any time you can request a project update to learn up to date info on how this project is progressing.
As a supporter of “Secondary Technical Training Skills For Businesses”, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Your hard work and intelligence is the greatest gift we could receive as we attempt to create a better world.
