The idea of an ICT company began in Botswana in the year 2000 when a number of Batswana and Basotho sat to discuss the possibility of business collaboration across the borders of the two countries. Lesotho became the starting point when BL Computers opened its door early in 2000. The company was ultimately registered as BL Skills Development Center a few years later. The beginnings were very steep and as usual unexpected by most of the directors who had expected early success. The turbulent times as usual caused many to lose heart and to abandon the lofty project they had so much loved to pursue. As they slowly made their silent exit the current MD of the company sought outside investors to help catapult the company to new heights. The new investors after having traded under BL Skills Center also lost it along the way and drifted further from the vision of the company and much conflict arose which led to the painful parting of ways. The current MD kept the vision alive and hence refused to give up under very stressful situations. He then registered the company under the current BL SKILLS.COM and kept the company running until it was back on track again. BL stood the test of time and through tenacity will become what the Almighty intended it to be. More than thirteen years of existence is not child's play - our experience is largely unparallelled.
