Build IT International

We believe in an Africa in which everyone has the opportunity to work and thrive.

To help bring this about we create opportunities for young people and their communities through skills training, work experience and community building projects. So far we have trained 480 young men and women in construction to give them the skills they need to earn a living and provide for their families, built 37 schools and clinics and built brighter futures for 240,000 people to help them thrive.
