Project Report | Apr 11, 2023
Increasing Knowledge Through Community Workshops

By Eric Shiu | Leadership Initiatives Facilitator

Leadership Initiatives is committed to improving the infrastructure of communities in sub-Saharan Africa. We are currently working to improve the infrastructure of two communities in northern Nigeria.  The development projects in the Tirwun and Madina Quarters communities are a crucial part of improving the lives of citizens. In both communities, we constructed new classrooms and boreholes for water sanitation. These projects are especially important in sub-Saharan Africa, where infrastructure is often lacking and access to clean water is limited.

The construction of new classrooms and boreholes in northern Nigeria will have a direct impact on the quality of life for those living in the region. Not only will it provide access to better education, but it will also provide access to clean drinking water, which can help reduce cases of waterborne illnesses. The classrooms and boreholes will contribute to the overall long-term health goals of the communities to create a healthier population today and in the future. 

It is our goal that these projects will have a long-term effect on both the Tirwun and Madina Quarters communities by reducing poverty and providing basic infrastructure that can help improve economic development, education, health, and other social services.

We have been working directly with leaders and community members from the Tirwun and Madina Quarters to select the most pressing issues to address with community development projects. Leaders from both communities believe that these development projects will give them the tools and resources they need to take control of their own development. This can lead to greater self-reliance and sustainability throughout future generations. 

Sustainable solutions such as boreholes and education infrastructure will create stronger community relationships, increase trust and cooperation, and improve community well-being. We are committed to being long-term partners with both the Tirwun and Madina Quarters communities.
