Hadisu Fashion Project - Fully Funded

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

Because of your generous donation, the skilled tailor, Abdulhadi Usman will be able to open up the Hadisu Fashion Shop. This fashion shop will provide affordable custom tailoring to the fast growing Dass region of Bauchi State Nigeria. With this project, Abdulhadi will be able to offer businessmen and women tailored suits and dresses, which are currently unavailable within her community. Through her vision, Abdulhadi will create five jobs in Dass as well as provide an alternative to individuals who have to travel long distances for professional tailoring. This change will allow local citizens to invest more money into their economy and generate individual incomes, which will ultimately improve the outlook of their community.

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 creating the Hadisu Fashion Shop, there will be an increase of jobs for local tailors. It will provide the community with new tailoring services that include complex weaving and cloth making. This project targets youths between the ages 16-25. These individuals will be taught advanced business skills and new tailoring techniques, which entails training three times a week. Lastly, Leadership Initiatives will remain as a resource to teach these individuals new tailoring techniques, help them expand their business, and train new people to work within the tailoring shop.

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 6 New Jobs with the Hadisu Fashion 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 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!
