Fostering the emergence of young leaders

Together with Unicef, BSF deploys the UpShift social entrepreneurship program in several sub-Saharan African countries, including Burundi, Uganda, and Benin. By providing them with four Ideas Cubes and 3,000 Kajou cards, we are accompanying nearly 50,000 adolescents and young adults aged 18 to 25 to give them the means to acquire professional skills in various areas: agriculture, crafts, etc. Facilitators set up training workshops so that young people can identify the challenges in their communities and brainstorm sustainable and innovative solutions to the problems they face.
