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 cultural ignorance and harmful practices. This training often concentrates on children’s rights and child protection, but can also cover:
- Awareness of HIV/AIDS or disability
- Beliefs that harm children, such as those underpinning âchild witchâ accusations and related abuse
- The prevention of abuse and violence against children
- Building resilience in children
- Positive parenting
BCTâs partner projects also work with village chiefs, community leaders, school teachers and parents, aimingÂ to change attitudes and beliefs.
Goma in eastern DR Congo is an incredibly hard place to grow up – deprivation of all sorts is rife. But LVLE is at work here, supporting street-living children and patiently working to change common attitudes towards children. LVLE is especially committed to supporting and training church and school leaders in children’s rights and child protection. Through this training, common negative attitudes towards children are beginning to change. Schools and churches alike are gradually becoming places where young lives can flourish.
How your money will be used
Your donation will go towards the cost of training workshops run by BCTâs project partners for parents, church leaders, community members, peer educators and volunteers so that they can be equipped and empowered to better care for children, protect them and address the issues that lead to their harm.
