Friends of BIZAA
Rescuing and providing education to child labor and trafficking victims is very important to us and our Friends of BIZAA. Our mission is to provide rescued children with primary and secondary education and young adults with technical training that will give them a more hopeful future. How do we do it? We work to arrange education through sponsorship, generate micro-grant programs for families and to increase our Friends of BIZAA membership.
Our vision is to grow our affiliation of organizations, schools and corporations to help further our goal of providing education to the most vulnerable among us. As we move forward, we continue to facilitate enrollment of young children into the existing private-school system and are working to build a technical college for young adults with the help of Friends of BIZAA.
Currently, BIZAA is in the process of developing educational curriculum for local schools and religious organizations within our affiliation, in order to educate our children about the significance of global solidarity and the problems of child labor, trafficking and domestic servitude in Africa.
