Global Young Innovators Initiative
Galilei KT Textile & Dwelries Team
The Galilei Textiles mission is to further young women’s workplace experience in Nigeria while expanding KT Textiles both locally and online. Through combining western and traditional culture we hope to bring a large and more frequent clientele. Also, we aspire to keep the integrity of the business through customer service and quality.
As a group, we hope to grow KT Textiles by rebranding the clothing and creating a common business logo, creating an easy online portfolio of clothing to keep the business mobile, and train young women to continue the trade and be able to get an insightful education. Through these processes we hope to learn more about each part of the business and the wonderful people who run it. We are very grateful for such an amazing opportunity and stepping stone to further our own education as well as reach out to help communities other than our own.
Finally, the Galilei Textiles mission is to insure and provide an expanding positive experience for both the current members of KT Textiles and, hopefully, in the future, the new members as well.
See how each day at the summit we are gaining new skills to assist our business partner and transform lives.

Story of the business
Elizabeth John is 26 years old, and the third of four children in her family. Both parents work, and Elizabeth was able to attend school. She is currently earning a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Hospitality and Tourism at Federal Polytechnic in Bauchi.
This business has contributed to the community by allowing people to express their creativity with materials and designs while still maintaining some of the more traditional cultural styles.
Elizabeth also stands out among her community as a leader by hiring young women and encouraging them to become leaders.
Her success has shown women how they can take charge of their lives and support their community. She also showcases young women and men who attend school and have been taken in by her and her employees.
This has resulted in additional attention and support, and has encouraged other business owners to participate in the Orphan Care program so that one day these children can provide for themselves and their families.
