Creating Opportunities for Success

The young people in our programs come from diverse backgrounds, all with different stories and hardships, our aim is to help them by introducing them to the idea that failure is not the end point, but an opportunity to push past the challenges and use failure as a stepping-stone to success. We also help them practically, by providing funding opportunities, mentors and a community that supports them.

Education That Stands the Test of Time

We believe Entrepreneurship is the best way for young people to learn resilience in an ever-changing world, when young people are exposed to action-orientated business training, it give them the tools and skills such as resilience, to go out there and make something happen despite the circumstance.

Because Young People Matter

Young people matter to us, and they should matter to you, they should matter to everyone, they are our future. We at BITS have a heart to see the people we serve find a place where they belong, through a community that cares, develop the belief that they can succeed despite their pasts.
