AfriBizKid presents Starting Your Small Business (SYSB), the FIRST EVER training on how to start and build a small business in Africa, designed and taught by people from Africa, for the Children of Africa.

By 2100, Africa’s population will have grown to over four billion inhabitants!

This startling figure means that WE, as Africans, are going to have to become  a lot better at creating job opportunities to support the needs of our beautiful and diverse continent.

Small businesses become medium enterprises, which can go on to become large enterprises in farming, manufacturing and commercial sectors.

AfriBizKid is designed to engender the basic knowledge of starting and growing a small business . . . for Africa’s children, as young as TEN years old!

And, YES, the Starting Your Small Business course is TOTALLY FREE!

AfriBizKid is totally committed to giving back to Africa, and this is first of many initiatives.

100% FREE!

We call it “Giving Back”!

Giving back to the beautiful continent of Africa and her people . . . one child at a time!

Parents of Children of Africa should watch this video!

This video could dramatically change your child’s future as they complete their schooling and venture out into the world of business.

These 7 minutes could change your child’s future!

Curriculum & Course Content

There is no ‘child-speak’ for business terms. At AfriBizKid, we teach Africa’s children ‘BUSINESS SPEAK’ from as young as TEN years old.

“Sales”, “Cash Flow”, “Resources”, and “Costs”, along with many other business terms will become part of every child of Africa’s vocabulary from a very young age.

Your dinner table conversations are set to change forever once your child starts with their AfriBizKid Starting Your Small Business training.

Furthermore, the AfriBizKid Starting Your Small Business curriculum is taught with real life, practical examples.

Learn more about Africa!

Lessons are delivered virtually from many of the 54 beautiful countries in Africa.

At the start of each lesson, students are provided with some interesting information about the country from where the lesson is being hosting, so as to add further relevance to the training, whilst also educating students on the wonderful diversity of our beautiful African continent.

Working Capital for Small Business!

Do you need working capital to start your small business?

If you are a Small Business Owner and are looking to have someone invest in your small business, please complete and submit the SBO Sponsorship Funding application form below.


Before applying for sponsorship:

  1. Make sure you have completed the Starting Your Small Business course
  2. Make sure you have built a Business Plan for your small business

Furthermore, it would be beneficial if you have already started a small business, although this is not strictly required.

Would you to like to sponsor the $100 working capital needed by a Small Business Owner to start their very own small business?

Sponsoring Small Business is essential for the hundreds of thousands of Small Business Owners (SBOs) needing a little working capital to get their small businesses off the ground.

So, if you are in a financial position to sponsor one or even more SBOs, PLEASE click on the link below and visit the SBO Sponsorship page.

AfriBizKid will maintain a rigorous screening process to ensure that all sponsorships go to deserving SBOs, and that the funds are put to good use.

To many of you, $100 might cause a little discomfort, but it won’t ‘break the bank! However, to a Small Business Owner, it is the difference between having some capital to start a small business, or not starting one.

Please give this your thoughtful consideration.
