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 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!
