Global Young Innovators Initiative
Parks KT Textile & Dwelries Team
It is our mission to make our mark on the world and create projects that will change lives. We will commit to any endeavor whole heartedly and dedicate all our resources. It is our goal to impact more than just our own community but extend our help to struggling areas internationally. We are currently striving to nurture the Rabiu Electrical Shop in Birshi Village, Nigeria.
Our focus with the electrical shop is mainly putting them “on the grid” by advancing their advertising attempts and informing their employees of safety regulations and precautions. Eventually, we aspire to raise the money to help Rabiu and his team to update their tools to more efficient appliances. We are not only pursuing this project to support Rabiu and his family, but to make Birshi Village a “brighter” place for its citizens. We are “charged” to work with Leadership Initiatives and gain experience!
We were pulled to teaming up with an Electrical shop because electricity is a necessity for the people of Nigeria. It is unfathomable to think some may be living without power, and it is so inspirational that Rabiu does many jobs pro- bono to put the light back in some Nigerians lives. Many Nigerians face extreme poverty, with over 70% living on less than a dollar a day.We wish to aid in making electricity easily accessible, as well as perfectly safe to use.
We believe a new business card and a safety booklet is a great starting point for a growing Electrical shop. We are striving to provide advertising mediums that Rabiu and his team can easily distribute. We hope that all our efforts focused into producing a solution will aid Rabiu Electrical Shop in continuing to be both thriving and successful in the future.
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.
