Summary

At Leadership Initiatives (LI), we believe in the power of communities to rise above systemic underdevelopment. Our mission is simple: empower individuals to be the catalysts for positive change within their own communities. We partner with local community and business leaders to provide promising individuals with the tools they need to become entrepreneurial leaders at a grassroots level.

Challenge

In Bauchi, Nigeria, unreliable infrastructure and a lack of economic development have contributed to poverty, inaccessible education, and job scarcity. To overcome these issues, we need strong, self-reliant leaders at the grassroots level. LI is dedicated to fostering connections and solutions within communities, using existing resources to tackle local issues. By doing so, we are helping create a new generation of innovative leaders who have the potential to change their lives.

Solution

At LI, we promote grassroots social entrepreneurship to drive lasting change. We have helped empower successful business owners in areas like fish farming, welding, tailoring, motorcycle repair, and more in sub-Saharan Africa. By empowering local community members, LI ensures that the solutions are specifically tailored to local issues using accessible resources, ensuring knowledge gained will be shared with others in the local community, creating a ripple effect of change.

Long-Term Impact

Our projects aim to create independent, profit-generating businesses that serve as models for growth in surrounding communities. When our beneficiaries succeed, they fill economic gaps, enhance their families' well-being, and contribute to the overall prosperity of their regions. Past business owners we've trained and empowered have sent their siblings and children to school, invested in new local businesses, trained apprentices, and offered vital services to community members.
