Why we do what we do

Endemic poor education, especially in emerging countries, leaves billions of people ignorant, uneducated,  largely unemployable and angry in the twenty-first century.

Millions of school management teams (school inspectors, principals and deputies) do not possess the skills and knowledge to turn under-performing schools around to become centres of excellence.

Generally parents of poor children do not afford their children the same start in life and ongoing support as middle-class parents.

QuoteOnly through mass training throughout the world can we

  • Ensure every child gets an excellent education and is supported by committed informed parents and can thereby gain tertiary education, take up an apprenticeship or gain meaningful employment
  • Fix the broken education systems in countries around the world

As a consequence of BCF work, millions of the poorest children will become engineers, teachers, accountants, computer boffins, electricians, etc. all adding to the global economy and intellectual capital.

Our amazing results speak for themselves

As a result of BCF national parent training programmes

Homework completion is UP, studying for examinations and tests is UP, school attendance is UP, marks are UP, progression rates from one year to the next are UP and dropout rates are DOWN according to the Northern Cape Department of Education which has been conducting the BCF National Parenting Training Programme since 2011.

As a result of BCF Programmes which enable principals to reinvent their schools as centres of excellence

  • 100% of the under-performing high schools for whom BCF conducted a four-month intervention in 2012 increased their matriculation results - on average from 46% in 2011 to 92% in 2016.
  • 79% of learners gained Bachelors or Diploma matriculation which enables them to enter university or technical university.
  • 100% of primary schools substantially increased marks in all grades.

As a consequence of BCF programmes

  • Thousands of young people who would have failed, have passed matric since 2011.
  • We have been requested by provincial departments of education to train an additional 1502 under-performing schools during 2017/18.
