• Nothing stops bullets, famine and ignorance like Education!


To ensure millions of children to leave school able to read, write and count.

Your generosity will 

  • enable BCF to empower Ministries of Education to increase the numbers of children who leave school able  to read, write and count
  • reduce the number of poorly educated largely unemployable, angry and mobile young people
  • empower millions of the poorest children to become engineers, teachers, accountants, computer boffins, electricians, etc. all adding to their national economy and global intellectual capital. 

BCF offers each donor the assurance that they will obtain the best possible return on their social investment. Only USD 270 is needed to transform a school into a centre of excellence. Based on 300 children attending each school, an investment of only USD 0.90 will potentially transform the life of each child. 

Leave a gift in your will

You were influenced by your parents and probably your grandparents. So was I.  Your legacy of wisdom and stories you created will remain in the memories and sub-conscious minds of all the people you influenced during your life.

With a bequest your legacy will continue to grow exponentially. You will ensure that little Tommy Atkins, Thembu Sondo and a billion other children living in poverty can attend a high-performance government school and ultimately attend a tertiary institution, take up an apprenticeship or enter a meaningful in-company training programme.

The Billion Child Foundation has already benefited over 2.4 million students and is well on its way to reaching its 2044 goal of having enabled a billion children to attend a previously under-performing government school which now operates as a centre of excellence while being supported by an informed committed parent/carer who has been trained in 21st century parenting skills.

It is so easy. Just list the Billion Child Foundation as a beneficiary in your will. You can either nominate the residue or a percentage of your estate or a specific amount of money. You could even nominate an insurance or superannuation policy, shares, property, works of art, jewellery or an investment in perpetuity

For some people, one benefit of leaving a gift to the Billion Child Foundation is that it does not affect their finances while they are alive but contributes to improving the lives of millions after they pass on.

All you need to do is to list the Billion Child Foundation as a beneficiary in your will. We will do the rest to ensure your gift educates children to enable them to escape a life in poverty.

If you would like to nominate a specific country, province, state or district please either record that in your will or contact the CEO of the Billion Child Foundation directly at alan@billionchild.org
