Read a message from Elisante Ephrahim, Our CEO.

Dear friends,

I am delighted to have the opportunity to connect with you and share the incredible journey we have embarked on as a team at BFA. For the past over 8 years, I have had the privilege of serving as the CEO of this remarkable organization, working alongside a group of passionate and dedicated young individuals who share a common mission: to bring light into the lives of African children, despite the challenges they face.

Just like many of you, I understand the struggles and hardships that come with limited resources. I have experienced the heartbreak of being turned away from classrooms due to unpaid fees, the frustration of lacking basic educational materials, and the embarrassment of wearing uniforms that no longer fit. These experiences have fueled my determination to make a difference and inspire change.

As young people, we are committed to addressing the pressing challenges faced by our communities, particularly children and youths . We firmly believe that they are the hope of our future, and it is our duty to provide them with the moral and material support they need to achieve their dreams and live fulfilling lives. By doing so, we also aim to create role models within our communities, empowering others to follow in their footsteps.

With our unwavering spirit of volunteerism, resilience, and collective drive, I am confident that we will continue to make remarkable strides forward. Together, we can uplift our continent, Africa, and help it rise again.

I extend my heartfelt invitation to all young people, children, elders, and every member of our society to join us in this noble cause. Together, let's contribute to the development of our communities and give back in any way we can. Your involvement and support are invaluable as we strive to make a lasting impact and shape a brighter future for our beloved Africa.

Warm regards,
Elisante Ephrahim
