Miami Country Day
International Business Alliance Program
Our mission is to join together as students and change the lives of business owners, in turn changing the lives of the people and the communities around them. We will strive to create the best solutions for any problems faced. We will strive to spread awareness and raise funds to help these businesses reach their highest potential. Lastly, we’ll work together, not only as a group of high school students, but as a group of people trying to change the world one step at a time. We’ll make sure to meet as many times as necessary, and to stay connected and communicate with our international business partners, so they are aware that we care and believe in their success. We will support each other on this journey, and work together as one to impact lives all over.

Story of the Business:
Yogurt’s role in the Nigerian diet has created a high demand for the product in many Nigerian communities. Rachael capitalized on this demand by opening up her own yogurt production business, which has began to earn a strong reputation. Zainab is a very driven young lady who is passionate about business. She always seeks ways to stand out from her competition. She is learnt about yogurt making while she was doing her Industrial Training (Internship) and she became very interested in going into the business herself. She has always sought ways to take care of herself without being a burden to her parents, rather she seeks ways to bring additional income to the family. Her business has given her this opportunity.
Zainab plans to employ at least 2 young people to work for her, thereby giving them an opportunity of employment and also to support her family with the income she makes, thereby helping her parents with her sibling’s welfare.
