Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,
Because of your generous donation, Abdulrahman Aminu will be able to follow his dream of creating a low-cost welding company for the Kari region in Bauchi State Nigeria. Currently, the Kari Region is experiencing high rates of unemployment. With the creation of Abdulrahman Welders, Aminu will be able to employ five local citizens, who will learn to restore gates, fences, windows & doors that are in disrepair. These skills will create an alternative to full replacement, which many in that region cannot afford. Additionally, through proper business training, these individuals will be able to identify obstacles to development within their own communities. Overall, this project will allow families, businesses, and government agencies to strengthen the infrastructure of its local economy.
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 implementing Abdulrahman Welders, welding repair services will be provided to the local community. Dilapidated buildings will be repaired & renewed allowing the community to see and utilize infrastructure growth for the first time. It is planned that an experienced welder in the capital of Bauchi will train the five employed by the welding company, including Abdulrahman. The goal of this project is to create a sustainable business model and find local investors to solve the problem.
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.
