Thank you for helping young innovators in Nigeria

In this report, Leadership Initiatives would like to introduce one of our Leadership Initiative’s Business Owners- Muhammadu.  Kawu Irrigation farm is ran by Muhammadu, a resident of Bayara, Bauchi state. Muhammadu inherited this line of business and the lands from his father, irrigation farming has been a family business for them and he took over the work from his father.

He is very passionate about Irrigation farming, as he sees this as an opportunity to feed his community and also provide for his family all year round. Early 2013, he came in contact with LI and has since been working with LI on the secondary business creation program, to help expand his business and create bigger and better opportunities for him to increase and improve his crop production and community impact.

Muhammadu tells of how much impact the Business Alliance program with LI has changed the business he has known all his life and how much he has learnt from the Harvard program with brilliant business changing ideas from the participating students. The impact of the program has helped improve his business management skills, and also produce greater yield for his farm produce through improved soil fertility ideas from the Harvard Envision Leadership program students.

Because of you, there are more jobs, orphans cared for and opportunities for communities in Nigeria. You can learn more at www.lichange.org or view the program pamphlet and benefits sheet attached. 

If you would like to learn more about our business creation programs please visit our new website at www.lichange.org.  There you can find out about their personal stories, meet members of the community, view photo galleries, or even set up a Skype call with a business owner!

Also if you had a moment could you tell us why you donated and how you heard of us, we are always trying to better refine our message and reach more people with our call to change. Thank you for also helping us, understand wonderful people like you better!

Wishing you, your friends and especially your family the absolute best this Holiday Season!

Sincerely,

 

Marshall and the entire LI family
