The origins of the GYI began in 2015 when one of our key workers felt prompted to go and live in Ethiopia for a period of 3 months. At the time we provided a one month training as a one-off, not knowing that God was speaking to us to develop this. Over the subsequent four years, it became increasingly clear through the people that God drew to us (eg Katy Read) that this was a more long term initiative that we needed to develop.
Fast forward to the autumn of 2019, Femi Oni was approached by a 16 year old who wanted to draw on the experience of BTBAB to pursue a career in International Development. Since that time a programme has been developed and initiated which is tailored to each individual who joins us.
