In this report, Leadership Initiatives would like to introduce one of our Leadership Initiative’s Business Owners- Hamza. Hamza’s story is one of LI’s most remarkable success stories. Hamza had nothing but a dream when he came across LI IBAP in 2009, but LI turned that dream into a celebrated reality!
A few years earlier, when LI initiated the Primary business creation program, Hamza was one of the welding business apprentices. He worked hard at learning all he could about welding because he had always loved it and LI had put the opportunity right in his hands.
Today, Hamza welders is one of the foremost welding business in the Yelwa Makaranta community in Bauchi state. His work is sought after by many and he keeps building on his designs with the help of the Harvard Envision leadership team. Hamza has been able to give back to his community by employing other young boys with dreams like he had, he now gives them the opportunity to make their dreams come through too.
