Challenge

Leadership Initiatives (LI) renews democracies on a grassroots level by cultivating self-reliant leadership. We help individuals and communities forge the connections necessary to solve local problems using existing community resources. In the process, we train a new generation of innovative, resourceful leaders poised to catapult their neighborhoods, regions, and nations forward.

Solution

Our students create novel solutions firmly grounded in principles of social entrepreneurship, creating 5 businesses in; fish farming, welding, tailoring, motorcycle repair & computer education with job placement.

Long-Term Impact

Develop independent profit-generating businesses that serve as models for growth in surrounding communities. Project beneficiaries fill voids in the local economy while improving their families' health, education and financial stability.
