Education is a powerful tool – a tool that frees lives, grows opportunities, produces strong families and even stronger and safer local and international communities. Sponsoring a BIZAA youth, donating to our operational school fund or technical college project helps global poverty by providing hooks and not fish to the youngest and most vulnerable. When over 59 million youth in Africa are forced into labor, trafficking and domestic servitude, and are prevented from receiving an education, they will eventually become adults with no opportunities that are caught in a continuous downward cycle unless sponsors like you take a stand to the injustices of so many that affect us all.
BIZAA offers primary and secondary education, and technical training to move children and young adults from the streets to classrooms. Assisting them in becoming self-reliant and productive members of their community and securing a better future for themselves and their families in this ever-growing interdependent world.
Educate a child, one child at a time and change the world. What better legacy could you leave behind?
