What we do:

Think about the first time someone recognized in you a spark, a talent you hadn’t yet seen in yourself. Remember the way your heart soared when you felt the power of what you could do and be. At Street Business School (SBS) we are honored to help people living in poverty experience that feeling by turning their spark into a fire of purpose through our entrepreneurial training program. We are a global organization with a goal of reaching a million people by 2027.

We are proud of our successes! With our help:
