BCF is currently registered as a charity/non-profit organisation in Ghana, South Africa, The Gambia and Zambia.

Within months registration in Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Malawi, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Tanzania will be completed.

Since foundation in 2010 principals, teachers and parents from schools attended by over 1.7 million children have attended BCF programmes.

BCF is on its way towards achieving its goal - by 2044 to have enabled a billion children to attend public (government) schools which operate as centres of excellence while being supported by committed informed parents.


BCF can turn public schools around district by district

In 2010 Fezile Dabi was a very average rural education district in the Free State Province of South Africa with only 48% of its learners gaining a basic matric pass at its under-performing schools.

In January 2019 the National Minister of Basic Education announced that Fezile Dabi was the top performing education district in South Africa in the 2018 matric exams.

92% of learners at all the previously under-performing schools in Fezile Dabi obtained a basic matriculation pass. More importantly, 77% of the learners who sat the exam obtained university or technical university pass. THIS IS A BIG DEAL!!

A miracle!! How did Fezile Dabi become the top performing education district in the nation?

In 2011/12 principals of all the under-performing schools in Fezile Dabi attended the SA Education Districts Centre of Excellence Programme which is a BCF culture change programme designed to turn every school in an education district into a centre of excellence. It works!!

It is with great sadness that we report the untimely death of Andre Milne who was one of the first facilitators to join BCF. After Andre retired after spending his whole life in education in various teaching and leadership roles he immediately joined BCF and become a very enthusiastic and popular facilitator. We will miss his wisdom, expert advice and humour at our management meetings and his passion for training parents and principals.
