Leadership Initiatives (LI) renews democracies on a grassroots level by cultivating self-reliant leadership. We help individuals and communities forge the connections necessary to solve local problems using existing community resources. In the process, we train a new generation of innovative, resourceful leaders poised to catapult their neighborhoods, regions, and nations forward. Leadership Initiatives will now venture to areas we have never been before to create sustainable change.
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. The difference between this projects & previous projects is that this program will offer executive skills training that we hope will solve not just local problems but create businesses that can have regional impact in areas such as food and living
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.
