Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives and Respective Donors,
Because of your generous donation, women throughout Bauchi State have been able to bring their ideas
for local businesses to the community forefront and then receive training with the skills necessary to
create, found and operate a business with local investor support. It was possible for Leadership Initiatives
to locate and inspire young women leaders in the local communities because of donor contributions
that provided basic business training for women leaders in the community. Lastly, the women are also
going to be creating businesses of their own design. These women will be designing and founding new
businesses to tailor to the needs of their communities, 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. Previously, Women in Bauchi had few options for schooling and
often could not receive the proper training to be part of the Bauchi workforce. Because of this women
often have to marry so they could survive. Currently, through offering promising women leaders with
entrepreneurial, leadership and project management training in Bauchi State young women will be
financially independent for the first time in their 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.
