Education is the key to a prosperous future

At BIT we believe that education is the best way to create a future generation of leaders. A group of young individuals that will steer Burkina Faso towards success. We need your help in order to provide students with the facilities, the knowledge, and the mindset they need to become these leaders. By supporting BIT, you give motivated students the chance to flourish and act as a catalyst for positive change in Burkina Faso.

We are still growing

While BIT is already creating a significant impact, we are not done yet! In the next academic year we will be opening a second bachelor course on electrical engineering with a focus on renewable energies. Additionally, BIT is growing, as new classes will join every year. These expansions require new facilities, more professors, and most importantly: your help! BIT aims to maximize its impact by continually growing as an Institute. However, we cannot do this alone and are extremely thankful for any support we receive going forward.
