I have served on many Boards of Directors in my life, and have never been prouder to serve an organization as I am to serve IIGL! The majority of our Board are students of IIGL from all over the world. They are giving back to the organization that has helped them to become wise, strong heart-centered leaders, and that is so inspiring to me! Of even greater inspiration to me are the community projects our students have founded and fostered, including an orphanage in Togo, an online educational program for high school drop-outs in Uganda, a plantain farm and plantain chip-making factory in Nigeria, and a leadership development project for at-risk youth in Nigeria! IIGL is changing the world 1 emerging leader at a time, proving that through wisdom-sharing, dedication, hard work, and belief in one another, anything is possible!

In the years I have been affiliated with IIGL, I have experienced and witnessed many profound life changes. The curriculum is designed to expand consciousness and increase wisdom and personal empowerment, and that is exactly the impact that it has on so many, many individuals around the world! The evolution of the future of world leadership has progressed exponentially because of the impact of IIGL studies, giving one great faith that tomorrow's world leaders will be far, far wiser than today's.

IIGL is not just a life changing organization but a ‘door” to excellent living.
The books I read, the people that I met and the opportunities that I have been exposed to as an IIGL student have indeed opened my eyes to the realities of life, transformed my life and made me a better person.
IIGL is a gift to humanity and I appreciate those who are working hard to move the organization to a greater height.

This Bereket Alemayehu from Ethiopia. Since 2006 I am one of the IIGL students who is growing every time, year by year in mind, thinking, character and fell a world citizen wherever I go and becoming very keen to serve to communities.

I don't have enough words to tell about IIGL and the goodness which it's thriving to make the world a better place by the impact of informal education and providing a platform to the students to share any valuable ideas and proven experiences.

long live IIGL.

Ever since I became a student, my life have been transformed tremendously. I have changed from being reactive to pro-active. I have become the master of my thoughts, words and actions. I can say that as a result of the books and exercises I have carried out since becoming a member, I become a change agent and a more responsible, understanding, appreciative, forgiving, relaxed, determined, focused and above all, a better christian. I was attracted to IIGL in late 2009 when I was searching for meaning to my life. It was through a book on how to write attractive CV's, written by one of the students that I got to know of IIGL.

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

Make the the books accessible to every human being on earth.

When I first heard about IIGL I was impressed with the sincere dedication, hard work and commitment of the program coordinator. As I reviewed the website,I felt complete alignment with the philosophy, mission, and purpose. A financial contribution was only the beginning. I began to read student essays and learn how lives around the world were being changed through IIGL's impact. Stories of personal and community hardship were being overcome through practical application of the principles learned through these resources. Letting go of the mentality of victim hood was discernible as students worked diligently through the program. Releasing patterns of victim hood indicates a major step forward in becoming a contributory world citizen. Following student essays reveals a courageous journey into self and fosters a desire to help others. Mentoring my first student was totally joyful as I was able to detect a shift in consciousness by the way he responded to specific challenges in his life. His efforts and people like me supporting him with life visioning resulted in him completing the program and establishing his own life coaching business. His own experiences now serve as tools to serve others in similar circumstances. Through this program, countless students have found life more purposeful and meaningful. Many have learned not only how to change their personal circumstances by seeing differently but also desire to give back by reaching out to enrich the lives of others in their communities and countries.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

finding personal satisfaction and gratitude in my heart as I have contributed time, talents, and treasures. It has enriched my life by being involved in the transformation of consciousness of individuals as well as local and global communities.

In 2005, I made a bold decision by joining IIGL to dedicate my life to starting and advancing a revolution in how Human Beings Think, Speak and Act, based on a new model of consciousness. I completed level seven studies October 2009. This marvelous journey has been life transforming, helping me discover what a man can do to move the world & benefit humanity. For me IIGL is indeed a Powerful, Safe, Nurturing, and Nourishing Platform for Individuals to step in to Re-discover and Re-claim the Natural and Authentic Brilliance and Greatness that They already Are.

I am among the earliest students of IIGL. What I learned from this institute helps me to structure my objectives and prioritize them. While doing this I gave a certain focus to my life to the extend where I am certain that my plan will materialize. As the director of the French division, I was able to develop a student group of 55 students with the support of contributors and volunteers. My only regret to date is the inability to do more financially to develop the French affiliate institute. The economy is currently tough. But, I really think that IIGL deserves massive support in developing emerging leaders allover the world, particularly in developing countries.

I have beren a regular contributor to IIGL for some time now and it feels like I am getting maximum impact for my money. The books IIGL uses are all great and the students from Africa, especially, seems to devour the information on higher consciousness. Since the inner is always outpictured in the outer, I know of no better way to raise the vibratory rate of the planet, and promote not only our survival but our flourishing as a species. Dr. David K. Banner

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

The reports I get from Michael listing the successes of the students and their love for the work they do.
