Carpenter Repair Program
Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,
Because of your generous donation, individuals throughout Bauchi State have been able to repair the decaying structures by using Plaster of Paris in construction. Donor contributions made it possible to train workers in carpentry and obtain the supplies to work on reconstruction of many infrastructures. After decades of poor upkeep, many infrastructures created during colonial rule in the 1950s had begun to crumble which was problematic for many people that occupy these buildings. Plaster of Paris is a high end construction for developing communities. Using this to help combat the decay of buildings will improve the lives of many 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. Sixty years after their construction many homes, offices and government buildings were falling apart. Local citizens didn't have the ability to address the lack of repairs and poor upkeep. This project works with businesses designed to combat the problems facing these buildings and the people who occupy them and aids in restoring the infrastructures which helps the community.
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 Plaster of Paris, 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 email@example.com. Your hard work and intelligence is the greatest gift we could receive as we attempt 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!
