To start off, thank you for your donations! These donations will continue to help enhance communities and create change in Bauchi State, Nigeria. Your support towards our student interns allows them to address major challenges in the community. Without the help of our donors, this would not have been possible. The student interns in our program have learned so much from our partners in Nigeria and have worked hard to create a better life for those in Bauchi. For our business program, each team has gone through the process of bonding with their business partner, learning about their lives, realizing the largest issues facing the business, and developing solutions to these issues. For our advocacy and public health programs, teams have gotten to know their project coordinator, learned all about the history and present status of their issue in Nigeria, and developed a campaign to raise awareness for their issue in the community.
Our students in the business, public health, and advocacy programs worked hard throughout the year to improve the lives of those in Bauchi, Nigeria. We are so proud of the student interns for how well they finished the year out. To start off, those in our business program ended the year by finishing their micro grant solution proposal and having one final call with their business partner to go over their innovative solution with them. For our Advocacy and Public Health programs, student interns finished off by drafting and finalizing a full community workshop for facilitators to implement on the ground. These community workshops will be used to inform residents of Sabuwar Kasuwa and Gudum Sayawa communities in Bauchi about several advocacy and public health issues. To officially end the year off, these students had a skype call with their project coordinator where they explained to them exactly how to give the community workshop and what information should be included in it.
As a donor to this project, we are so thankful to have your support as we attempt to create change for those in Bauchi Nigeria. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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 lives in Bauchi through supporting business initiatives and working to develop innovative solutions to their problems. 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 business is facing.
Our students have been working throughout the fall semester to create and develop innovative solutions special to their business partner. We have been working with a multitude of businesses such as fish farming, tailoring, electronics, and auto-repair. Each of these teams has written a detailed solution proposal, outlining everything that they have worked on these past few months. These developed solutions can help each business increase their profit and create a better life for themselves and their family.
Team 1077 interns have been working with Salisu Abdullahi, the owner of Textiles by Salisu. They have had multiple Skype calls with their business partner to develop a relationship with them as well as go over vital business information. With your generous contributions, Mr. Abdullahi was able to implement our first solution proposal: a financial tracking and receipt system. He is already beginning to identify various weaknesses in his business, such as unnecessary expenses, lack of a customer support system, etc. His customers have been thrilled with the new improvements, and Mr. Abdullahi is seeing an increase in the number and happiness of his customers. The money also goes towards his business training (ex. financial literacy classes) and the implementation of our future solutions. Currently, High School of American Studies at Lehman College, Stuyvesant High School, and the Brooklyn Friends School students are working hard to develop ways Mr. Abdullahi can advertise to his community and grow his business. Your support of Team 1077 interns and their hard work is crucial to the success of each team and solution.

Your donation will empower individuals and communities across Bauchi State, Nigeria, giving them the opportunity to form connections and address local issues using community resources. This will create a generation of leaders given the platform to encourage progress that starts at the local level but impacts many more. Contributions from donors give promising individuals access to entrepreneurial, leadership, and project management training. These leaders then identify developmental obstacles within their communities, design practical solutions, and create sustainable business models to overcome those obstacles.
Our students create innovative solutions firmly grounded in principles of social entrepreneurship. We have previously created businesses in Bauchi, Nigeria: fish farming, welding, tailoring, motorcycle repair & computer education with job placement. Currently, this project will help local business owners as they strive to maximize the profit and impact of their business.
Team 1077 has partnered with Salisu, the owner of a textile business along Federal Low-Cost Bauchi that sells to local communities at affordable prices for all. Currently, the interns from the High School of American Studies at Lehman College, Stuyvesant High School, and the Brooklyn Friends School are working hard to raise money and come up with solutions to help his business thrive. Your generous donation helps support Team 1077 and their project, which will truly change lives across the globe.
