Women Are the Heart of Every Community
BFB Foundation strengthens developing communities by supporting education-focused initiatives for girls and women. We work in regions that are generally poor and largely indigenous, providing educational opportunities from preschool through adulthood. Working with organizations in these communities that share our vision, we create a synergistic approach to empowering girls and women to end the cycle of poverty for their families and communities. As women learn life and leadership skills, receiving the support they need to build self-assurance and self-reliance, they begin to realize their own worth and potential, becoming agents of positive and lasting change.
I want to thank you [BFB Foundation] for your help since the beginning of my university education. For me and my family, this has been a gift... I remember when I was in 3rd grade, I always said that I wanted to be a teacher and thanks to your help, my effort, the help of God and my friends, I achieved it. This was my last year in university and I am grateful and happy.
The 5th grade students held a bazaar with some of the money they saved in the Aflatoun program. When the students finally reached their goal of having the bazaar after planning it, seeing them smiling at the end of the day when the food sale was over, was the best kind of satisfaction as a teacher.
I need the education to start a business and do it with love.
Learning English is important because it will provide us more job opportunities in the future.
I am very happy making my pine needles and embroidery. It helps me to improve my family’s income. Thanks to trainings and help that I received from the Riecken Foundation and BFB Foundation. My goal is to support other women in my community and make progress together.
