January 2014 Regional Business Education Project

A microproject by Leadership Initiatives
Dec 19, 2013

2014 LI will start soon because of you!!!!

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,

Because of your generous donation, young leaders throughout Bauchi State have been able to develop independent profit-generating businesses that serve as models for growth in surrounding communities. Donor contributions made it possible to for the Regional Business Education Program Center to offer business training which gives businesses the resources needed to expand, employee more people and solve local problems with development. Young women and men who have pushed the boundaries of their community to solve local problems through business initiatives will now receive the training to expand their ideas across their region to build a brighter Nigeria. Lastly, project beneficiaries fill voids in the local economy while improving their families' health, education and financial stability, which will 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. Currently, this Regional Business Education Program Center in Bauchi offers classes to teach leaders financial, personal and business management. It also serves as a resource for problems and questions that arise. In essence this program will provide a 2nd year of regional business training allowing businesses that are currently successful to open up new shops in the surrounding region changes hundreds of lives.

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 “Regional Business Education 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 mbailly@leadershipinitiatives.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!
