Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,
Because of your generous donation, Leadership Initiatives has gotten closer to launching a new microproject training program for LI leaders who cannot travel to their offices in Bauchi. This project encompasses a new satellite class for those who have life-changing ideas but do not possess the resources to become part of the current Bauchi training program. Looking at the big picture, the microproject will help cultivate independent leaders as well as assist individuals and their communities develop the necessary connections to resolve local problems such as the high unemployment. LI will help these potential leaders and their respective societies understand that ideas can emerge and be actualized using existing community resources. Through such guidance and training, LI will encourage and aid the new generation of innovative, resourceful leaders to improve the outlook of their neighborhoods, regions, and overall 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, through enacting this new satellite training program, LI will be able to extend its programs to surrounding Northern Nigerian communities. Consequently, this microproject allows new businesses to form outside of Bauchi State boundaries and will help to achieve regional change.
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 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 “Create 20 New Jobs with our New Leaders Project,” 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.
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!
