Women's Outreach Project for Business

A microproject by Leadership Initiatives
Vetted

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.

As a supporter of " Women's Outreach Project for Business",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!

Sincerely,

Marshall
