Expand Bauchi welding to create jobs for youth

A microproject by Leadership Initiatives


After decades of poor upkeep, many infrastructures created during colonial rule in the 1950s have begun to crumble. Repairing these decaying structures can be done by using expanding LI created welding businesses in the Bauchi region. By expanding these LI business programs more jobs will be created for young men and women while servicing a community who desperately needs new infrastructure support.

Fifty years after their construction many homes, offices and government buildings are falling apart. Local citizens don't have the ability to address the lack of repairs and poor upkeep. This project will work with businesses designed to combat the problems facing these buildings and the people who occupy them.


The way that this microproject will help combat the problems with decay, it will focus on using low cost welding projects and how they can rebuild the crumbling local structures in low income homes, churches, mosques, business and more. This is a high end construction for developing communities.

Long-Term Impact

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.
