BCIT has an unparalleled opportunity to make an outstanding impact on the world by extending its expertise and knowledge to the developing world, more specifically, to Africa. We could adopt a village or an educational institute and realize dramatic benefits from this venture. Helpful partnerships and sources of funding could likely be found, which could only enhance BCIT’s stature and profile. I recommend action be taken immediately.
