Give to SCWA
Stop Child Witch Accusations (SCWA) is taking a stand against the appalling abuse whereby children are falsely accused of being witches.
The world is gradually becoming aware of how widespread this practice is, especially in areas where ignorance and harmful beliefs have taken root. Children who are targeted by accusations of witchcraft can suffer rejection, violence, even death. SCWA, of which BCT is a founder member, is a coalition of organisations and individuals who are committed to raising awareness of this abuse and bringing it to an end.
One of SCWAâ€™s key focuses is working with pastors, as well as other community leaders. While many churches are champions of children and their rights, some are perpetuating the problem, due to lack of proper theological training or accountability.
SCWA is also developing a training resource for church leaders. TheÂ Heart of the MatterÂ has been piloted very successfully in Togo and DR Congo, and the team is now making final tweaks to the resource, ahead of its launch.
