BIT is creating access to education for students in Burkina Faso, one of the world’s poorest countries. With mentorship from partners across the globe, BIT’s mission is to create leaders who will convert their technical knowledge into business opportunities.

Using Webex, BIT is bringing world class knowledge to the students, helping them to develop entrepreneurial ideas...The next Bill Gates, the next Tesla, I’m totally convinced, is coming from Africa.”Francis Kéré, Founder and Principal Architect, Kéré Architecture
