Our education program aims to increase the number of children receiving quality education by emphasizing both parental investment, village cooperation. and sponsoring children to attend school. BCB's is specifically focused on increasing young girls attendance in school.

BCB's 2010 Delegation visits a school in Atakpame, Togo, where we plan to build a school! Children in this school walk over 3 miles every day to attend and they spend the entire day without food or water! BCB seeks to transform the lives of these students with our direct interventions.

We are currently working on a pilot project in the rural village of Madjamakou in the Atakpame region of Togo in the city of Glei.

Children can’t learn if they don’t have the physical and emotional support needed for concentration, growth, and development. The country and rural region we are working in is extremely disadvantaged and lacks the development and funding to establish a sound educational infrastructure.

We intend to provide resources for the villagers to help them improve the school structures already in place or build new ones. We also plan to engage women to create and maintain a village women’s collective to operate school canteens, which will provide schoolchildren with a meal and water during the school day.

In addition, we are building bridges through an education exchange forum that will connect local teachers with the international community and teachers in the US and Europe.
