Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donor,
First and foremost, thank you! Your donations will continue to empower individuals and communities across Bauchi State, Nigeria, giving them the opportunity to form connections and address local issues using community resources. Donors’ contributions have allowed Leadership Initiatives and their students to carry out their mission of improving the lives of victims of human rights abuses and create advocacy and awareness campaigns within the local community. The students in our program have been engaged in months of cultural immersion and have been building connections with our partners in Nigeria to accomplish the goal of fixing the imperative issues that each team is working on.
Our students have been working throughout the fall semester to create and draft a brief specific to their issue. These briefs are the summation of the preliminary research they have done in an effort to gain a proper understanding of their advocacy issues and how they impact communities in Bauchi. Now that our students have completed this intensive research-based report, they are using the knowledge and skills gained to continue their work to transform lives all around Bauchi. Currently, this project will help raise awareness and create community programs to fight human rights issues.
Ladue Horton Watkins interns have been working with LI Project Coordinator Auwal to assess the current human rights violations surrounding human trafficking in the area. They have had multiple skype calls with their project coordinator to develop a relationship with them as well as go over vital information. Currently, the Ladue Horton Watkins team is working hard to develop educational material and awareness around the topic. Now that the Ladue Horton Watkins team is equipped with your support and a deeper understanding of human trafficking, they are moving forward on the path of raising awareness to fight it in Bauchi.
As a donator to this project, your support is an amazing thing to have as we attempt to transform lives. Everyone at Leadership Initiatives would love to have you more involved in our organization if you would ever want to help us grow our programs or learn more about ways that you can assist. Please contact Executive Director Marshall Bailly at email@example.com if you have any suggestions, questions, or comments!
On behalf of everyone at Leadership Initiatives, thank you for everything that you have done. We all truly appreciate your donation and support for our organization. If you would ever like to speak to our staff in Nigeria or this specific project leader, we would love to communicate with you so you can personally see the change you are creating.
Wishing you the absolute best!
Ladue Horton Watkins Team
