Description

Pierre Mbala formed Buendedi Business Built on Love (BBBL), an organization empowering Congolese artisans in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) byreselling their accessories in the United States, and aims to fund the tuition of Congolese teens. Utilizing his years of experience as a Valley Scholar, he has created a similar application process to find academically determined teens in Congolese school systems. The grant will allow BBBL to sponsor two teens for six years while still selling accessories to work towards sponsoring more teens. BBBL embodies excellence by providing opportunities for teens to reach a high level of academic performance and works to establish mutual respect with the artisans by continuing the relationship of buying their accessories.
