Georgetown Visitation Students Creating Change

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 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 out these past few months. These developed solutions can help each business increase their profit and create a better life for themselves and their family.

IIP Team 1078 interns have been working with Gloria, the owner of a tailoring business that specializes in women’s and children’s clothing. They have had multiple skype calls with their business partner to develop a relationship with them as well as go over vital business information. Currently, the Georgetown Visitation High School IIP Team is working hard to develop an advertisement solution to attract a wide customer base to their business partner’s tailoring shop. Your support of Team 1078 interns and their hard work is crucial to the success of each team and solution.

As a donor 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 mbailly@lichange.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.

Wishing you the absolute best!

The Georgetown Visitation High School IIP Team

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donors,


Your donations 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. Some of the businesses we have previously created in Bauchi, Nigeria include fish farming, welding, tailoring, motorcycle repair, and 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.

Three Georgetown Visitation interns and one Lake Braddock intern have partnered with Gloria Bukata, the owner of a small tailoring business. Currently, this team is working to develop solutions to help financial and organizational matters for future growth, hopefully allowing the business to one day expand into a fashion house with pre-made items for sale in a viewing room. Your encouragement and support of the Georgetown Visitation and Lake Braddock team and their project will truly help change lives across the globe, as this business not only provides crucial resources for the community but also creates critical job opportunities in the area.

As a supporter of this project, Leadership Initiatives would love to have you involved if you ever want to help grow our programs, learn of ways you can participate, or have new ideas on how this team could best help their business partner. Please contact Executive Director Marshall Bailly at mbailly@lichange.org if you have any suggestions, questions, or comments! Your hard work and support are the greatest gifts we could receive as we attempt to create a better world.

Thank you once again from the bottom of everyone’s heart here at Leadership Initiatives. 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, your family, and your friends the absolute best!


Sincerely,


Leadership Initiatives
