IIGL is one of the institution that I can recommend anyone to join at any given time. Having gone through the leadership program it shaped me in-terms of my perspective towards life. It gave me tools that got me to be where I am and to be able to find my path in life.
For me my life journey towards self discovery and pursuit of purpose started the moment I joined IIGL as a student. The transformation is evident on my day to day life, and the impact of the program for me was in the ability to contribute to humanity. For through the program I am able to help my community and circle of influence to pursue a meaningful life.
IIGL a great fit, i think i knew them when i needed help for my life. Though i just started, the books i have read is already shaping my thought and telling me who i trully am. I'm beggining to recognise my personality. It's good to know IIGL. The impact has started in my thought, you will definately hear about it. I now know am a great leader.
My journey thus far has been with pleasant memories. I owe a lot to IIGL for the guide and support through life with the number of books I have read and the mentorship. Having little opportunities in life due to the society we live in, IIGL has and still gives the opportunities to own up to the through meaning and purpose of life. My journey with IIGL started in 2006 but I never understood the essence due to the youthfulness but in 2012 I was able to gather myself together, this time, with the hope to correct many mistakes I made. For example, I volunteered with an organisation in 2009 because I was obligated by the scholarship committee and immediately I completed the one month community service I stopped. But after my re-activation as an IIGL student, I understood the essence of giving which is an opportunity. Today, I am a professional in the field of humanitarian and development...thanks to IIGL for giving me the solid foundation with the hope to do even more.
A company without people would be a building and so is a church without people a hall. The international Institute for Global Leadership have, over the years, carve a niche in the area of developing positive minded leaders all around the world depending on funds from generous donors and I strongly believe that we as Africans will develop Africa for Africans all thanks to IIGL and our donors.
Dear GNP ---
Based on 15 years of Board membership and funding of the International Institute for Global Leadership (IIGL), it is an honor to report that this organization, with a minimal budget of barely U.S, $50,000, has succeeded in stimulating the leadership qualities of hundreds of students around the world, and their frequent development of local projects to impulse the transformation of society --- accomplished at no charge to all interested applicants throughout the globe. As a result, members from students to mentors, to Board members, to funders create many long-term personal connections, creating the cultural exchanges which are the foundation for world synthesis, as well as the opportunities for rising above the many challenges --- economic and/or spiritual --- so prevalent around the world.
In addition, this year (2018) the organization has produced a book of testimonials by graduates and other key members of IIGL, intended to expand the student body to areas of the world where it is yet to establish a foothold, to increase visibility on social media platforms, and to stimulate fundraising.

In mutual planetary commitment -----
While establishing Micro-Credit projects in developing countries, I came to realize that societal transformation depended on transforming leadership around the world. Thus when I was introduced to the International Institute for Global Leadership -- a free online training for heart-centered leaders -- it seemed like a personal invitation to support our mutual mission. I began working with IIGL from its inception in 2002 and through the years have become acquainted with many of its students and their envisioned projects, several of which I have funded, including farm training for the unemployed in Nigeria, high school training in leadership also in Nigeria, entrepreneurial training for the poor in Uganda, with others in the preparatory stages. The initiators of these projects are all graduates of IIGL , who have succeeded by applying its principles of heart-in-the-head responsibility, veracity, and self-reliance.
IIGL is a very small and minimally funded organization which relies on the mutual commitment of its family of students, mentors and Board members for its longevity. I cannot recommend it highly enough as a role model for societal progress, both locally and, by extension, globally.
Over my lifetime, I have volunteered for many non-profits and served on the boards of several. Nothing compares to my experience with IIGL!
IIGL lives its mission by helping students all over the world increase their knowledge, their wisdom and their empowerment in ways they never imagined possible.
Watching IIGL and its students grow and blossom over the years has been inspiring and gratifying. Although economic and other challenges are an ongoing part of our journey, our students inspire us to achieve great things in spite of the challenges we face, because that is what our students do each and every day.
This year, in a collaboration that began with an idea from one of our 2017 graduates (now the president of our board of directors), the IIGL graduates and board of directors recently published a book of their own, titled "Finding Your Path Through Leadership" (available on Amazon), which is filled with inspirational stories of the life changes brought about by their implementation of what they have learned through the IIGL studies. Our hope is that it will provide others with the hope, courage and perseverance they need to strive to become great leaders in their own right.
Watching IIGL grow from a vision to a very dynamic institution which is having a profound positive impact on so many individuals has been truly inspiring! IIGL has changed lives!
Those whose lives have been changed are now changing the lives of others, and the good work continues, grows, and spreads all around the world. Many of IIGL's graduates have gone on to start NGOs in their own countries, and are using the wisdom they have gained from their IIGL studies to empower others and enrich their lives.
Many of our students had nothing but hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow when they found IIGL. IIGL provided them with the knowledge and wisdom they needed to become strong, wise and successful community members and leaders - and did so at no charge! Books are free, and there is no tuition. IIGL operates exclusively on the donations it receives.
IIGL is changing the future for the better one person, one leader at a time.
For me, the International Institute for Global Leadership (IIGL) has been a star in the sky that enlightened my path to self-confidence and independence. These qualities acquired through studies with this institute helped me to become self-employer and to stimulate my colleagues for creating an association of lawyers. This association is planning to get its own house in Muhanga, a town located in the Center of Rwanda.
International Institute for Global Leadership (IIGL) is a world to discover; a world to experience. Your life will never remain the same after encountering this transformational institute. The leadership traits I learnt during my studies transformed my business mindset, creativity and volunteering initiative; today I am happy serving organizations such as Rotary International, Next Leaders Initiative for Sustainability, International Centre for Leadership Development Nigeria as a volunteer.
I enrolled in IIGL in 2013 and graduated in 2016, becoming the fastest graduate since the history of this great institute. In 2017, I was elected to serve as a Vice President. In May 2018, I was elected to serve as Board President.
I feel greatly honored recommending International Institute for Global Leadership; this is a tuition-free institute where people of vision are mentored with the pre-requisite skills that will enable them achieve their personal and professional goals faster than they can ever imagined.
Today, IIGL has produced 26 graduates from 10 countries, and we have active students, many of whom are happily making impacts in their professions and communities in 35 countries which cut across 6 continents.
IIGL programme is available to anyone anywhere in the world that wants to boost their leadership capacity, grow professionally, emotionally, socially, intellectually, psychologically and financially.
I have benefitted immensely from this institute and that is why I have no doubt recommending it to those that wants to become transformational change agents in the hearts and sands of human historicity. IIGL resources are offered free of charge- there is no tuition, and IIGL is able to do good in the world through donations received from Good-spirited individuals.
Long Live IIGL.

By Ethelbert Obinna Umeh
As a contributor and former staff member, I continue to be impressed as to how IIGL is transforming and empowering lives. The ripple effect is phenomenal!
This is an awesome organization which is helping young people develop a consciousness of success through personal transformation studies. I have been a financial supporter and advisor through out the life of the organization and am an enthusiastic supporter.
IIGL is a superb institution that brings the best out of her students. I recommend it for everyone tired of an average life, and who importantly want to influence the world for a sane course.
Since the beginning of leadership studies provided by the International Institute for Global Leadership, the orientation of my life changed a lot. I could achieve many goals by reprogramming my mind in the positive way. Hereafter I give two examples, but there are many other achievements arising out of the positive mind gotten from leadership studies.
Before, I was blind-minded by the employment offered by others. After finishing the only two first levels, I was already aware of a possibility of becoming my self-employer, as an attorney.
After I learned the benefits of the mastermind alliance, I tried to convince my colleagues for founding an association of attorneys. Today, with the collaboration of three other lawyers, we have a law firm operating in Rwanda, and we have an ambition to open branches in other areas of the country (Rwanda) and the East African Community.
Moreover, with the collaboration of 11 other lawyers and their spouses, we have founded an association "Tumenyane Solidarity" with an objective of social cohesion between members, saving and credit. Each family contributes 20,000 Rwandan Francs (around 25 US $) per month. In the near future, I hope all lawyers members of Tumenyane Solidarity will join the law firm.
Joining the International Institute for Global Leadership (IIGL) is one the best things that has ever happened to me. I can confidently say that my world is better because of the skills and knowledge that I acquired through the studies.
My dreams and aspirations in life are clearer and I work towards achieving my set goals daily with less distractions.
Hello Everyone, I am Aishatu Ibrahim, I started IIGL in 2013; it has been a truly rewarding experience for me. I am happy and excited to be part of this great family. IIGL has helped me improve my life and career. I started as an undergraduate and today I am a post graduate student with the National Open University of Nigeria, studying Computer and Information Technology (M.Sc. CIT). IIGL has improved my career as I am an ICT Entrepreneur. I am the MD/CEO of Naisha Smart Technologies, a Registered ICT Educational, Support Services and Consultancy Company with the Cooperate Affairs Commission as BN: 2411304. My website: www.nst.com.ng and Email: email@example.com . I enjoyed reading the wonderful books at each level.
Understanding the significance of my words: I realized that man cannot do without words. Even while asleep, we use words; we see, write, think and use them even in our head. I learnt from this book that some of the words we use might have different vibes at the time of usage. Our words affect our thoughts and hence our feeling. I learnt to use the best words, ascribing these beautiful to good experiences. I learnt of the words that are causing me to attract what I do not want in my life. These include the Don’t, I’m not, etc. using these words only bring the things I try to avoid. My words have changed, so have my vibes (from partial negative to fully positive). I am not giving my attention to any negative thing but to all positive things I want.
Lessons learned: I offer service as long as it is genuine and I try to be useful as possible. While most people do not value the service rendered to them, others are so ungrateful and expect you to do more. Others might not even grateful for the service rendered them. And at times, A good did can be seen as bad!. So I try to be careful in everything I do. I do what is right, convenient and ethical. I do not work under pressure neither do I please others at the expensive of myself. I got here by taking a lot of decisions in the past and present. These decisions has affected me both positively and negatively. I do not leave in regrets, I only wish I did some things better. Presently I am not doing badly: I can do better. I am improving myself and I am making remarkable progress.
My name is Roger from Rwanda and i am an active student of IIGL level III, When I think about IIGL, I go back in days, that time I was worried about my future, that time at any moment when I would like to paint something, as I would close my eyes to see the picture I should paint, I would only see myself in a tunnel and I couldn’t see a way out, the color would be dark nothing else. That was the only picture of myself I would see and that used to scare me, I was lost I had to live but I had no idea how, but a friend, a mentor, a guide reached to me in that tunnel and took my hand and pulled me out of that tunnel and within few minutes I started to see the light ahead of me and I knew then that I was being saved, the heart that was filled by fear was then filled by hope. I am glad that I found that person, that guide, that friend, that mentor, and his name is IIGL (International Institute for Global leadership).
IIGL changed my ways of thinking, IIGL helped me to understand what really I want in life, and It is by knowing what I want that I will reach the success that I wish to, IIGL taught me to set goals and pursuit them till the last day, IIGL taught me that the last day of a goal is the time you will achieve it, in brief to never ever give up, because most of people give up when they were almost there, and as an IIGL member that should never happen to me, Because IIGL opened my eyes.
For me, IIGL is an Institution that makes me who I am today. The lessons I got, completely free of any charge were unexplainable. I am really indebted to IIGL. It has changed my life in a tremendous way.
I am Ziyad Rube, Ethiopian, joined the International Institute for Global Leadership in 2009 when I was at the age of 21. IIGL is an Institution that gave me an opportunity to grow emotionally, socially, spiritually, physiologically, intellectually, and financially while contributing in some positive way to others. A year after I have joined the Institute, the positive energy and winning mentality created within me through the lessons I get from the Institute led me to start my Second Degree in 2011. In 2013, I have graduated as one of the few academically top ranking Students in my University. In 2014, I am elected as the President of Ethiopian Leadership Graduates Alumni Association
Interestingly Indeed right now, at the age of 27, I have obtained a PhD Scholarship in Europe this year * 2014. To be honest, I have attributed all my successes to everlasting lessons I draw from the smart books I received from IIGL for free. To this end, I urge the encouragement and support of dynamic nonprofit driven institutions like this.
Long Live to IIGL
Long Live to all who are Positively Influencing our world!
International Institute of Global Leadership is first of its kind, highly inspirational leadership school that has imparted so much in my life. The influence on me is so invaluable and has been the catalyst spurring me to forge ahead even in the midst of life challenges through the recommended unquantifiable books that I have been opportuned to read at no cost.In fact, I am greatful and highly favoured to be part of the beneficiaries across the globe. Consistently, the giant in me is awaken and ready to be of positive influence to my generation.
I have known IIGL close to 3 years, its without an inch of regret.
IIGL has really changed my life from a goalless individual to someone who is making waves. When I enrolled for IIGL which was introduced to me by a friend of mine. IIGL made me rediscover my purpose and has help me develop personally and professionally. From the first two introductory books. Its has been an exciting experience because I have been practicalizing the principles of the books I have read so far and the results has been tremendous. God Bless IIGL and her sponsors.
IIGL Level 2 Student
my name is Juliette Alyce Engole. i am Ugandan.
I am currently a level 4 student under the IIGL program. Before i joined this institute, i was desperately searching for a leadership institute to harness my leadership ability. a friend who was a student in IIGL told me about it. i applied and was taken in. my life has been totally transformed as a result of the books that i have read under this program. i learned about the importance of living a purposeful life and now my life has so much meaning. thanks to IIGL, i have been able to achieve so much in this short period of time.
I stumbled on a quote that I never understood the implication until I had gone far in the IIGL program. It is; “You are the same person today that you are going to be in five years from now except for two things; the people you associate with and the books you read.” The people I met here and the books I was exposed to changed my orientation about life and the world. IIGL is a program that if I had not under taken would have been my greatest regret in life. The program taught me how to handle personal and group conflicts, how to educate others and above all how to be a good leader. Through IIGL my reading habits have improved significantly and my writing skills were thoroughly sharpened. IIGL has made me a focused person, changed my dreams and also serves as a guide to achieving these dreams in life. It is truly a worthwhile experience.
I have been involved as a donor, board member and student mentor for many years. This has allowed me to witness many transformations in the students who have participated. They become positive, motivated adults who strive to improve the lives of people in their communities. I continue to be inspired by the changes I observe and the projects that the students undertake.
