Street Business School Partnership

In April, TSDI embarked on a new adventure as a way to strengthen our ongoing commitment to grow human capital and eradicate poverty.

We supported our affiliate in Nigeria to become Street Business School (SBS) certified! This has allowed them to add an entrepreneurial education program to their existing services. SI4DEV is currently the only SBS global catalyst partner in Nigeria!

SBS is a six-month, mobile classroom uniquely tailored to meet the needs of those we serve in our local communities. SBS creates transformation for people living in poverty by building confidence and igniting entrepreneurial skills. Those living in this economic group are most likely to lack the skills and confidence to start their own business. We will help them do just that!

Past SBS success shows that graduates increase their income an average of 54% at graduation and once they are earning an income, graduates will be able to participate fully to improve their community. This new approach to achieving our mission is strategic and sustainable.

SBS has also shown to increase income levels by more than 200% within 2 years of graduating. With this added income, those who participate in this project will be able to access these validated results.

I would welcome an opportunity to answer more questions about SI4DEV and our SBS partnership. I am confident SBS will reduce poverty among participants and increase economic sufficiency and growth in the short and long term. Please join us on this exciting journey.
