Connecting Students and Entrepreneurs for Success

By Noah Kim | LI Intern

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donors,

 

We are currently fresh into 2020, 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 ever before. We couldn't done it without your kindness.

 

This past summer, students at Leadership Initiative's International Leadership and Business Tier I and Tier II Summits were offered the chance to apply to form IBIP teams of their own. These students were granted this opportunity after their success working with various partners in Nigeria, including an autobody repair shop, orphan care centers, tailoring businesses, farmers, and carpentry. During this experience, students also received guidance from experts, such as business CEOs, mentors from the State Department, and members of the Nigerian Embassy. Our students' hard work allowed for businesses in Nigeria to receive the support they need, and we also were able to start several new businesses from scratch because of their amazing proposals.

 

Now, many students from these summer programs have joined LI through the International Business and Internship Program (IBIP), and they have become a part of a similar, year-long commitment to their business partners. With such a spectacular increase in IBIP teams this academic year, we are especially appreciative of any donations. To all of the donors that have allowed us to reach this success: we cannot thank you enough!

 

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
