Lives transformed because of your support!!!

Dear Devoted LI Supporter, 

I am so proud to tell share with you the success of our Literacy Training program and how the success of key business owners receiving literacy training has allowed to exponentially grow and provide more for their communities, their families and themselves. 

Over the course of the last year Raibu and several others have learned to write in English and are now communicating with Leadership Initiatives International Business Alliance Program students. 

Together they are creating new solutions to problems Raibu is facing and creating new ways to create an even stronger and ever growing electrical grid. Raibu is now able to read instructions and ideas sent to him by students to teach him new ways to repair and construct electrical wiring and components. 

Below is Raibu's effect on the community because of the your generous donation and support. 

Rabiu’s Electrical shop has connected multiple homes and businesses to the Bauchi electrical grid and has worked to restore old buildings and structures so they can support electrical devices. The impact of these efforts cannot be overstated. Because of Rabiu and his team’s efforts, jobs have been created throughout Bauchi and more families can benefit from everything that a home with power has to offer.

Rabiu also sells electrical equipment including televisions, stereos, lighting products and more. This is especially important because many people in his community lack the transportation necessary to travel to other areas that sell these products.

Rabiu’s Electrical shop also does pro-bono work restoring and connecting electricity for those who cannot afford his services, allowing their families to grow even when they are struggling economically.

Rabiu has also taken in six young teens and helps provide for their food, board, education and skills training so they can one day find employment in the field of electrical repair.

Thank you for transforming lives with us,
Sincerely,
The entire LI Family
