Our Team

Our team is bound by the core belief that education is the primary foundation to empower people and communities to break the cycle of poverty. Primary education must be accessible to all, not remain a privilege for some.

We partner with local philanthropic entrepreneurs/schools that are embedded in the communities where we can drive a significant impact. These partners share our vision and have the expertise needed to navigate local rules and run their schools. Since inception in 2013, BC has invested in 6 school partners across 4 continents and sponsored the education of over 5,000 students. Our leadership team has gained tremendous knowledge to create change through these investments.
