VisionTurn Job seekers into Job Creators
There are more than 300 million young people between 18 to 35 years old around the world who are unemployed or under employed. Around 20% of these young have the potential to become an entrepreneur and yet less than 5% do. This is an unacceptable waste of talent and presents the business world with both a challenge and an opportunity. To address the issue Youth Business International (YBI), a not-for-profit organization was founded in UK in 2000, initiated by the Charity of Prince of Wales. It is worldwide umbrella organization that leads a global network of independent country initiatives helping young people start their own business and create employment.
Hearing about the success of Youth Business International (YBI)’s model in more than 40 countries around the world, most of them having similar socio-economic conditions, B’Yeah was founded by some socially committed person in Bangladesh
With the unique approach of YBI, B’Yeah assists young entrepreneurs who are unable to find support elsewhere. This approach enables the youth to launch new enterprises and significantly increases business survival and growth – key factors in job creation and sustainable economic development.
B’Yeah has a target to support 300 youth to be establish their own enterprise and create job opportunities for other people in their community by 2019.
