BCF proudly announces that it is making steady progress towards transforming government schools into centres of excellence.

Our goal is by 2044 to have enabled over a billion children to attend schools which operate as centres of excellence.

During 2020 BCF appointed Ambassadors in Botswana, DRC, Ghana, Gambia, Ivory Coast, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. This has proven to be a winning strategic shift.

BCF Ambassadors are tasked with approaching Ministers of Education or their Permanent Secretaries of their countries to persuade them to seek funding from international donor organisations to launch BCF programmes to transform every school in their countries to become centres of excellence.

To date BCF has presented an MOU to Uganda and is about to do the same Zambia following receipt of an Expression of Interest from their government. The BCF Ambassadors of Malawi, Tanzania and Botswana have presented proposals to their respective governments and our Ambassador in Mozambique hopes to meet the Minister of Education tomorrow or next week.

On the 9th of February, training of 1,020 head teachers/principals of schools in South Africa will resume.
