Give to Training

BCT’s partner projects are committed to mobilising churches and communities as agents of change on behalf of vulnerable children.

Our partners focus their training 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 ‘child witch’ accusations and related abuse
  • The prevention of abuse and violence against children
  • Building resilience in children
  • Positive parenting

    LVLE’s Jean-Paul Aruna trains local school leaders in child protection.

BCT’s partner projects also work with village chiefs, community leaders, school teachers and parents, aiming 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 BCT’s 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.
