Project Report | May 10, 2024
International Program & Development Team Update

By Jessica Bailly | Chief Operations Officer

Dear Leadership Initiatives Donor,

Noah, Laila, Genevieve, and Devin in the International Public Health Internship Program have dedicated themselves to extensive cultural immersion, forging invaluable connections with our esteemed partners in Nigeria to accomplish the goal of fixing imperative issues that the community is facing.

Noah, Laila, Genevieve, and Devin have been working with Mubarak, a project coordinator in the field in the Lushi Community. Through Skype calls, the team has learned about the obstacles facing individuals who are dealing with Waste handling/management. Throughout this year, Team 23429 has demonstrated unwavering commitment and ingenuity in crafting a comprehensive public health proposal tailored to address the specific needs of the Lushi Community. Their collective efforts extend beyond mere proposal development; they are actively engaged in initiatives aimed at enhancing access to vital medical and public health services throughout the community.

As Team 23429 approaches the culmination of their intervention efforts, they are preparing a community workshop aimed at empowering individuals and fostering collective resilience in addressing the pressing issue of Waste handling/management. Through a multifaceted approach including outreach, community education, counseling, social support, and advocacy, Noah, Laila, Genevieve, and Devin drive to strengthen health knowledge and self-sufficiency within the Lushi Community.

By equipping community members with the tools and resources, they need to navigate the challenges posed by Waste handling/management, Noah, Laila, Genevieve, and Devin aspire to not only prevent its occurrence but also to reduce its prevalence significantly. This proactive initiative underscores their unwavering commitment to effecting positive change and fostering sustainable health outcomes in partnership with the resilient communities they serve.

Additionally, Leadership Initiatives is beginning work on multiple community development projects in rural areas of Bauchi, Nigeria. To highlight one, in the Gwallagan Mayaka community, efforts are focused on the installation of a borehole, a system that will provide clean and accessible water to residents, addressing a fundamental need for health and sanitation. In addition, there is only one health clinic within the community, making births and medical emergencies dangerous as they are underequipped. Leadership Initiatives is working to expand the medical clinic to help more members of the community by supplying them with equipment needs and building additional wings throughout the hospital. These projects underscore Leadership Initiatives' commitment to empowering communities, driving sustainable development, and creating lasting positive change.

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. 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!
