Challenge

According to the World Bank, Nigeria's poverty rate is currently at 46% due in part to weak human capital development and under-investment in rural regions. Nigeria currently ranks 152 of 157 countries in the World Bank's Human Capital Index. A large number of uneducated, out-of-school, and unemployed youth combined with a lack of employment opportunities has created a cycle of poverty in Northern Nigeria. The Leadership Initiatives Business Education Center aims to break down these barriers.

Solution

To ensure the realization of entrepreneurial empowerment necessary to enhance economic growth and development, there is a need to first train new business owners in basic business skills. The Leadership Initiatives Business Education Center will train community leaders to open and operate their own businesses, utilizing community resources and promoting sustainable development across their respective villages, towns, and cities.

Long-Term Impact

Communities will have successful businesses to use as models for sustainable growth and independence. The projects will showcase entrepreneurship, both social and private, and provide templates for how communities across the developing world can overcome development obstacles. Leadership Initiatives' Business Education Center aims to utilize the potential of local leaders and underserved communities in order to create cost-efficient and small-scale examples of effective grassroots development.
