Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donor,

 

First and foremost, thank you! Your donations will continue to empower individuals and communities across Bauchi State, Nigeria, giving them the opportunity to form connections and address local issues using community resources. Donors’ contributions have allowed Leadership Initiatives and their students to carry out their mission of improving lives in Bauchi through supporting business initiatives and working to develop innovative solutions to their problems. The students in our program have been engaged in months of cultural immersion and have been building connections with our partners in Nigeria to accomplish the goal of fixing the imperative issues that each team is facing. 

 

Our business students have been working throughout the fall semester to create and develop innovative solutions special to their business partner.  Each of these teams has written a detailed solution proposal, outlining everything that they have worked on these past few months. These developed solutions can help each business increase their profit and create a better life for themselves and their family. Our medical students  have recently completed their public health issue briefings. These briefs are the summation of the preliminary research they have done in an effort to gain a proper understanding of their public health issues and how they impact communities in Bauchi. Now that our students have completed this intensive research-based report, they are using the knowledge and skills gained to continue their work to save lives in Bauchi. Our law and advocacy students have been working throughout the fall semester to create and draft a brief specific to their issue. These briefs are the summation of the preliminary research they have done in an effort to gain a proper understanding of their advocacy issues and how they impact communities in Bauchi. They are using the knowledge and skills gained to continue their work to transform lives all around Bauchi. These projects will help raise awareness and create community programs to fight their specific advocacy issue. 

 

As a donor to this project, your support is an amazing thing to have as we attempt to transform lives. Everyone at Leadership Initiatives would love to have you more involved in our organization if you would ever want to help us grow our programs or learn more about ways that you can assist. Please contact Executive Director Marshall Bailly at mbailly@lichange.org if you have any suggestions, questions, or comments! 

 


On behalf of everyone at Leadership Initiatives, thank you for everything that you have done. We all truly appreciate your donation and support for our organization. If you would ever like to speak to our staff in Nigeria or this specific project leader, we would love to communicate with you so you can personally see the change you are creating.

 

Wishing you the absolute best!

 

Sincerely,

Leadership Initiatives

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donors,

Your donations will empower individuals and communities across Bauchi State, Nigeria, giving them the opportunity to form connections and address local issues using community resources. This will create a generation of leaders given the platform to encourage progress that starts at the local level but impacts many more. Contributions from donors support public health, advocacy, and business development initiatives and create educational campaigns within the local community. 

The public health program provides individuals with critical knowledge for the prevention, treatment, and eradication of the most threatening public health issues in sub-Saharan Africa.  The advocacy program provides individuals with essential civic skills and knowledge, building their practical ability to advocate for themselves and others, and enhancing the human rights within their community. These leaders then identify developmental obstacles within their communities, design practical solutions, and create sustainable business models to overcome those obstacles.   

Our students work with local NGOs and hospitals in Nigeria to assess and monitor the current public health situation, then design educational campaigns to educate individuals in the community on prevention, risk, and treatment options. Additionally, students create innovative solutions firmly grounded in principles of social entrepreneurship. We have previously created businesses in Bauchi, Nigeria businesses: fish farming, welding, tailoring, motorcycle repair & computer education with job placement. Finally, our students work with local NGOs and government agencies in Nigeria to build human rights education programs, then design educational campaigns to train community leaders and develop teaching materials to carry out advocacy initiatives.

As a supporter of this project, 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 this team could best help work on their public health issue. Please contact Executive Director Marshall Bailly at mbailly@lichange.org if you have any suggestions, questions, or comments! Your hard work and support 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 in Nigeria or this specific project leader, we would love to communicate with you so you can personally see the change you are creating. Wishing you, your family, and your friends the absolute best!

Sincerely,

Leadership Initiatives

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donors,

 

We are fresh into 2020, and our reach keeps expanding rapidly thanks to those who support us. Due to this tremendous support, we have more (over 100!) IBIP teams and business partners than ever before. We could not have done it without your kindness.

 

Therefore, I would like to share a student's story of her experience with her business partner and how your contributions made this interaction possible:

 

"My journey at Leadership Initiatives began [three] years ago when I attended the Global Young Innovators summer program at Emory University. There, we were presented with a business from Nigeria which we would help during the entire week and ultimately give a presentation of our solutions. Because of my great work here, I was able to start an IBIP team of my own. For the past year and a half, my team has been working with Ms. Deborah and Unity Restaurant, helping her improve the problems presented to us. Some of our solutions that we have been able to give to Ms. Deborah are a new logo, new business cards, new flyers, and re-designed menus. Currently, we are working on improving her delivery system."

 

Because this student had the opportunity to help Deborah and her restaurant, she has been able to expand, and therefore have the resources to help others in her community. All of our business leaders that we partner with are also dedicated community leaders who - if helped - will offer jobs and support to members of their community. This creates a cycle of change that continues to help generations ahead. As long as we give these people the help that they need, they will make sure to use that gift to cause change themselves.

 

We send thanks again to our donors and supporters because you truly make a big difference in our reach. By supporting us, you are supporting the people across the globe who are grateful for your contribution. Your generosity has helped us create more job opportunities for both community adults with businesses and orphans. Ultimately, we wish to use donations to create a platform for hopeful business owners in Nigeria. Change can happen anywhere at anytime - and by helping us, you are affecting lives halfway around the world. Thank you again for all that you do.

 

Thanks,
