Bamboo Builders envisions a day where every youth is able to gain access to quality education, regardless of their economic circumstance. To achieve this, we pioneer curriculums that equip and empower young adults in rural communities to build sustainable businesses that support financial needs of rural schools. Thus, in coming to school, youth gain entrepreneurial mindsets and soft-skills while earning a small wage.
Bamboo Builders has also identified that a critical first step to empowerment was to fix the paralysing “I cannot” and “I don’t know” mindsets. We developed a program that forms a core part of our curriculum and has been proven to drive personal transformation where shy, self-limiting youths become empowered community leaders.
To date, we have trained more than 6000 young adults from 10 ASEAN countries. Some have created businesses that have in turn impacted more than 900 people.
