International Health & Development Team Update
Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donor,
Hansley, Philip, Jerry, Alexandra, Saisamanvi, Sam, and Albert in the International Public Health Internship have been engaged in months of cultural immersion and have been building connections with our partners in Nigeria to accomplish the goal of fixing imperative issues that the community is facing.
Hansley, Philip, Jerry, Alexandra, Saisamanvi, Sam, and Albert 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 that are dealing with Harmful Practices. In January, Team 23457 worked hard to create a community workshop proposal to address Harmful Practices in the Lushi Community. Your support of Hansley, Philip, Jerry, Alexandra, Saisamanvi, Sam, and Albert and their hard work is crucial to the success of each team and solution.
For team 23457’s final intervention, Hansley, Philip, Jerry, Alexandra, Saisamanvi, Sam, and Albert are preparing a community workshop to build individual and community capacity to address Harmful Practices. By increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support, and advocacy, Hansley, Philip, Jerry, Alexandra, Saisamanvi, Sam, and Albert hope to raise awareness about Harmful Practices in the Lushi Community.
Additionally, Leadership Initiatives is beginning work on three community development projects in rural areas of Bauchi, Nigeria. In the Inkil community, plans are underway for the construction of a new school building that will allow educational opportunities for local children and foster a brighter future. 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 the Guru community, a culvert bridge will be constructed that will foster connectivity to other communities and allow access to vital services during the rainy season. These projects underscore Leadership Initiatives' commitment to empowering communities, driving sustainable development, and creating lasting positive change.
