Level Three, devoted to personal assessment and goal setting, consists of written exercises. In Levels Four, Five & Six a student may choose seven books for each level from a selection of more than 400 books in 17 subject areas. The upper levels offer students many opportunities for advanced guided studies, internships, etc. according to their personal interests and life goals.

I am DOGBO KOFI FAFALI a Togolese living in GHANA. I officially joined IIGL on the 14th MAy 2011 after a friend has revealed to me the intellectual benefits of the American-based Institute. Even though English is a second language for Francophone students like me, I didn't give chance to the linguistic barrier to stop my ambition. Unfortunately I didn't get any university degree before becoming a university-dropout but IIGL has opened my eyes and is giving me hope as I keep on reading its books. I was so delighted as I read Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude, I call this book ''my Bible". Today because of IIGL I am equipped with knowledge to live a successful business and marital life. Before, I thought wealth possession is the gift of destiny but IIGL lets me believe that it is possible with anybody who carries stubborn vision backed by determination. THANKS IIGL, LONG LIVE THE SPONSORS.

As the founder and first director of IIGL I have been privileged to see the incredible transformation that these studies have brought about in the lives of our students. Unlike many really great non-profits which focus on outer circumstances, IIGL focuses on the inner world of attitude and belief with the understanding that our outer circumstances of life are a reflection of our attitude and beliefs about ourselves and the world we live in. This focus on the very foundation of personal and social change makes IIGL utterly unique and in a category by itself.

The International Institute for Global Leadership is a one-of-a-kind program. Unlike most leadership training programs, it is not university or business based. Also, unlike most programs, it is freely available without cost to anyone anywhere in the world. IIGL's focus is on training heart-centered leaders who are committed to being planetary change agents. The program begins with personal empowerment as the foundation for true leadership. For this reason it's offers a curriculum in consciousness with books that help students wrestle with the fundamentals of life and discover our true potential for Greatness. The ultimate goal of the program is to assist students in becoming consciously aware, high-integrity and heart-centered leaders in their communities and the world. This is why I am a dedicated contributor.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

see it have more funding to enable it to do so much more of what it is already doing.

I begain working with the International Institute for Global Leadership (IIGL); www.global-leadership.com in 2002. Each year I have gotten to know more students and contributors globally. We are one global family! My experience is remarkable and I know each of us is making a GREAT difference in planetary change by participating in IIGL!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

The IIGL Students could receive "live" leadership training and offices could be established in each of the African countries. IIGL could be funded for 100 plus years with 10 million dollar gift!

IIGL is a great NGO which has helped me gain new knowledge through books I never would have easily accessed. Most importantly, the books are sent to me through e-mail (soft copy) at no cost to me. This is an NGO with a wonderful mission. I am thrilled to be a part of IIGL.

IIGL is a unique organization to which I have found none yet like it. In my study with IIGL, my vision has broadened especially following being given access to books I ordinarily may never have been able to come across myself.
Most importantly, these books are made available to me in soft copy at no cost to me.
I am grateful to the dedicated board members and advisor's who have continued to push this great organization forward.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would create chapters for monthly meetings in various states so that the members can get to meet and know themselves.

 The books I read in IIGL make me realize that the war against poverty, diseases, ignorance, backward ness, violence, and bad leadership in the world is basically mental, and freedom can only come by understanding the power of thoughts. The more I have a better understanding and new interpretation of spiritual issues which hitherto had not been so clear to me, the more I have the strenght to face my challenges and know the right things to do to become the change that I wish to see in the world.

i got to find out about the IIGl program from a friend of mine who has always challenged me to become a better person in life. he told me reading books could help me get to that person that i wanted to be and i sort of didn't believe him at first but decided to join the program anyway. i can now say that reading books does help a lot. the program has helped me to realize the importance of many things that i always took for granted for example defining one's goals in life and writing them down, having a positive attitude among others. the program has helped me to develop and improve on the relationships that i have with people around me especially with my family who i have had problems with in the past. i have great confidence, hope and self esteem in myself and my abilities. i am deeply grateful to the people that have made this possible for me in this program and i would encourage anyone and everyone to become enrolled in this program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the great encouragement i receive from time to time from the other students and also from Michael (the emails)

Ways to make it better...

if there were ways to have an interaction or meeting with everyone involved in the program

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...
