My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Leadership Initiatives, Washington , DC, USA
In the year that I have been working with Leadership Initiatives, I have seen so many lives dramatically changed, my own included. I have been given opportunities that I had never dreamed of, and have had the chance to work with the amazing staff of LI, which has become like a family. In my sophomore year of high school, I was given the unimaginable opportunity to work closely with an impoverished, orphaned student in Nigeria hoping to make enough money to support himself and his sister. During the Summer, I was able to work with a security business attempting to protect a Nigerian university from terrorist attacks from groups like the Boko-Haram. Leadership Initiatives offers students around the world the unique ability to lend aid to developing communities, gain real-world work experience, and connect with other cultures in a way that no other program can. For those in developing communities, it gives them a chance to grow their business, acquire important connections, and, perhaps most importantly, provide hope for the future. I can not put into words how thankful I am to Leadership Initiatives, and I know that hundreds of others would say the same.
