LI transforming lives through fish farming
Dear Leadership Initiatives Donor,
In just a few days, Leadership Initiatives (LI) has the opportunity to significantly increase our funding and expand our global impact through the Global Giving Matching Day
campaign. We hope you will make your next donation on June 13, 2012 at www.LImatch.org.
All donations made will be increased by 50% as long as matching funds matching funds are available. Because of this we are asking all donations be made by noon at www.LImatch.org.
Before asking you to make a decision, we’d like to share the words of those lives you have changed.
- Sani Abdu Fish Farming Business Owner "LI has given everyone in Bauchi so much, I can afford to send my children to school because of my business, my eldest son has become an LI Leader himself and owns a market stand and I have gone from a small farmer to a community investor!"
- Lydia Shehu the first female poultry farmer in Bauchi “To me what I think of Leadership Initiatives, is to plant a seed of development both in your life and the life of others, so leadership initiatives is about building a small idea into greater perspective.” Lydia now employes several women and men and is helping other women become business owners in Bauchi.
- Hamza Ya'U welding business owner "LI has lifted me out of poverty and made me a community leader and I hope to return the favor through their Orphan Care Program, I want youths to be able to provide for their familes and build something better for our community and through Leadership Initiatives we will do just that!" Hamza is now training several orphans as skilled welders so they can soon earn money to support their families and one day own a businesses.
Established LI leadership trainees are now re-investing their earnings
in their communities, providing education to family members, expanding their businesses, training new employees, and even loaning money to assist new LI trainees in launching their own businesses. This is lasting change!
