Don’t COP out like our politicians! Become part of the success story 1285 704 The Billion Child Foundation

It looks increasingly as if COP 26 is going to be another talk shop.

Don’t you wish that just for once world leaders would unite to save our planet by agreeing to implement practical steps to reverse climate change. I do. But we know there is not a lot we can do to force foreign governments such as India and China to come to the party.

However, there is a lot you and I can do to give parents and children hope that their governments will provide them with an excellent education no matter whether they live in squatter camps in Brazil or live hundreds of miles from a city in the arid parts of Africa.

The goal of the Billion Child Foundation is, by 2044, to have enabled a billion children, mainly in developing countries, to attend schools which operate as centres of excellence.

And we are well on our way to reaching that target having already trained principals and teachers from schools attended by over 2 million children how to turn their schools into centres of excellence with great success.

Over 86% of students at schools whose principals BCF had trained who wrote the matriculation examinations in 2020 passed the examinations.

Far more importantly, 68% obtained a university or technical university matriculation pass!!

Millions of young people still at school or who have graduated with a university or technical university entrance pass certificate now have the opportunity to escape a life in poverty by obtaining a tertiary  qualification, taking up an apprenticeship or entering a meaningful in-company training programme.

Within a few years they will proudly enjoy a life as a middle-class citizen, contributing to their country’s economy and global knowledge.

I am going to ask you to play a role in permanently changing the lives of millions of children by clicking here and making your donation.

One GBP / 1.30 USD or R19.50 will enable BCF to provide 3 children with the opportunity of attending schools which operate as centres of excellence in countries around the world. Please consider making a small monthly or annual donation. You can do that by clicking here

BCF currently operates in 3 African countries – South Africa, Ghana and Lesotho but will, with your donations, expand to 11 developing countries next year. Their Ministries of Education have requested BCF to help them. Now I am asking you to help the millions of children currently in their schools to obtain a quality education.
