LEADERSHIP INITIATIVES STUDENT LEADERS
Leadership Initiatives creates honest, independent leaders who are poised to effect lasting change throughout their nations and the world. Our student leaders participate in several weeks of intensive hands-on leadership training sessions during which they begin identifying root causes of underdevelopment and designing locally sustainable solutions.
We help them work closely with local business and community leaders throughout program design and implementation, thus strengthening and expanding existing leadership while establishing new standards for accountability and transparency. Highlighted below are just a few of our graduates and the successes they have gone on to.
JOSHUA NGWAKAWA-2006 Graduate
Joshua Ngwakawa is a graduate of Computer Science and a Master degree holder in Business Administration (MBA). He is currently pursuing a Certification program in CISCO and in Computer Science. Joshua came up with the idea for the Computer Literacy Project. Serving as an IT Instructor at the University of Maiduguri, he saw the opportunity to take the skills he acquired in his studies and offer them to a broader audience.
Due to his expertise and willingness to instruct students for free, his project became the most feasible of all project ideas suggested and gave him opportunity to interact with other NGOs, CBOs, Donor Agencies and other stakeholders on Youth and Women Development on ways to help the Nigerian less developed Communities. Literally changing the way people teach computer science and how schools undertake new technologies within his community.
