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 give a generation of leaders the platform to encourage progress that starts at the local level. 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 businesses: 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 1120, consisting of 4 interns from across the US, has partnered with Aliyu, the owner of a welding business. Through Team 1120's first meeting with Aliyu, they were able to learn much about his motivations, aspirations, and life. Currently, the Team 1120 team is working hard to craft a financial tracking system for Aliyu to manage his budgets. Your encouragement of Team 1120 interns 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions, questions, or comments! Your hard work and support is the greatest gift 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!
IIP Team #1120
