Leadership Initiatives (LI) approaches the problems of underdevelopment by empowering communities to address their own needs.
LI partners with local government and business leaders to provide promising individuals with entrepreneurial, leadership and project management training. These young leaders then identify obstacles to development within their own communities, design workable solutions, and create sustainable business models to overcome those obstacles.
In the short term: Local leaders create sustainable solutions to existing community problems
In the long term: Leadership Initiatives develops resourceful generations of leaders poised to empower entire nations.
