Project Report | Sep 3, 2019
Connecting Students and Entrepreneurs for Success

By Noah Kim | LI Intern

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donors,

 

We are more than halfway through 2019, and our reach keeps expanding rapidly all thanks to all of our supporters. Due to this tremendous support, we have more IBIP teams and business partners than every before. We could have not done it without your kindness.

 

I would like to share a student's story of her experience with her business partner and how your contributions made this interaction (and interactions just like these) possible:

 

"My journey at Leadership Initiatives began two years ago when I attended the Global Young Innovators, Envision summer program at Emory University. There we were presented with a business from Nigeria which we would help during the entire week and at the end 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."

 

From this student helping 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 dedicated community leaders who - if helped - will offer jobs and support to other people in 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 encourage significant change in their communities. 

 

We thank you again to our donors and supporters because you truly make a big difference in our reach. By supporting us, you are supporting communities in sub-Saharan Africa who are grateful for your contribution. Your generosity has helped us create more job opportunities for both adult business owners and orphans. Change can happen anywhere at anytime - and by helping us, you are affecting lives halfway across the world. Thank you again for all that you do!

 

Thanks,

 

The Leadership Initiatives Team
