Give to Training
BCTâs partner projects are committed to mobilising churches and communitiesÂ as agents of change on behalf of vulnerable children.
Our partnersÂ focus their trainingÂ workshops on equipping church pastors, parents and other church members, to lead the way in tackling issues which affect the wellbeing of children in their communities. This training often concentrates on children’s rights and child protection, but can also address positive parenting, awareness of HIV/AIDS or disability, or harmful beliefs such as those underpinning âchild witchâ accusations.
BCTâs partner projects also work with community leaders, school teachers and parents, aimingÂ to change widespread attitudes and to equip these leaders to, in turn, train others.
LVLE, our partner in Goma, DR Congo has done extraordinary work in training local church and school leaders in children’s rights and child protection. In an environment where child abuse is endemic, churches and schools alike are now implementing child protection policies, taking reports of abuse seriously, and taking action against perpetrators.
