Thanks to the generosity of SAGA Charitable Trust in the UK BCF has trained 53 pastors to train parents in the dangerous Langa township in Cape Town.

Pastors are currently training parents at their churches.

This should see over 3,000 children being raised by committed informed parents in cohesive, harmonious homes to become confident, self-reliant individuals who will complete their education and ultimately escape a life in poverty.

They will train hundreds of parents in the dangerous Diepsloot township near Johannesburg during April.

The SA Police Service has reported that Win-Win Parenting has proven to reduce gender and family based violence by over 50% for a period of more than two years after parents are trained.

This Programme was sponsored by Investec.

 
Ensuring every child in the classroom is always engaged

'I think the really important idea is that every student in the classroom knows that they can be expected to be asked to respond to a teacher question, or can be asked to comment on something another student has said. If we want to create a community of learners, it’s not enough that students are quiet when other students are speaking – they have to be listening appreciatively to each other.'

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.
