Pastors from 23 churches in Langa, Cape Town are currently training to present our Win-Win Parenting Skills Programme in Langa, Cape Town.

They join pastors from 23 other churches in Langa who attended this programme in January. Between them they will train thousands of parents to become confident parents aiming to raise confident, self-reliant children to become future winners.

Police in other towns have reported a reduction of call-outs to family violence up to two years after pastors have trained parents in their community.  We expect the same results in Langa.

The photo below shows a pastor practicing delivering modules of the Win-Win Parent training programme to his colleagues. This rehearsal is an essential part of their training to ensure pastors have the confidence and skills to facilitate training of parents at their churches - because they have presented the material before at their WWP facilitator training workshops.

This Programme is proudly funded by the SAGA Charitable Trust UK.

On Saturday the 26th January BCF 21 pastors graduated as fully fledged Win-Win Parenting training facilitators in the Langa township in Cape Town. A second group will graduate on the 17th of February.

These pastors are expected to train parents of over 2,000 families in Langa to raise their children to become confident self-reliant individuals. Pastors will also encourage parents to ensure their children do homework and attend school every day and remain at school until they matriculate.

It is expected that a similar impact will be made to that made in Sasolburg where the local police commander phoned to congratulate BCF on call-outs to family violence having decreased by 50% for a period of two years following the training by 71 pastors of parents in the district.

These photos show graduates receiving their certificates and photos of the training workshop.
