James Caan CBE will present our appeal. As a successful entrepreneur and investor, James is well placed to share YBI’s work supporting underserved young people around the world to fulfil their entrepreneurial potential.
The appeal will be broadcast at 07:55 and 21:26 on Sunday 27th October. It will be broadcast a final time at 15:27 on Thursday 31st October. Listen to the appeal here.
In our appeal we share the story of Tahmina Kabir, a young entrepreneur supported by YBI’s member in Bangladesh. With the skills training, mentoring and financial support she received, Tahmina now runs a thriving fabric business and is supporting herself, her family and the wider community.
With your help, we can support many more underserved young people like Tahmina around the world. If you would like to make a donation click here.
