A Rwandan pastor surrounded by smiling children, all facing the cameraBCT partners with grassroots Christian organisations, helping to restore the lives of some of the world's most marginalised children.

We believe that local people understand their communities, their children and the most important local issues far better than we do. We also believe that local Christian organisations are uniquely placed to enact change in their communities. So we work alongside grass-roots Christian organisations, who are deeply embedded in their communities and making a difference to marginalised children. We resource them, train them, help them draw up strategic plans and walk with them through the joys and challenges of serving children. And of course, we're always ready to learn as we go.

And the local Church is central to our partners' work. Each of our partners is not only active in directly serving marginalised children, but also committed to local congregations: inspiring and equipping them to meet the needs of their children.  

We currently have project partners in DR Congo, Rwanda and Zambia. We are also part of the Stop Child Witch Accusations coalition; a group of organisations committed to ending witchcraft accusations against children. Alongside these partnerships, we have created Transformation Resources to enable church and community leaders to address issues affecting local children. We see these resources as a project in themselves.

We and our partners are currently focusing on serving children affected by:

  • disability;
  • HIV;
  • homelessness;
  • abuse of all kinds, and especially arising from accusations of witchcraft.
