Mission

HISTORY

BCF is a humanitarian non-profit organization founded in 1998 by Monique and James Beauchamp  Monique is Nicaraguan and James is from the USA. Monique came to the United States in the late 1970’s due to the onset of civil war in Nicaragua. The foundation began with just family, friends and colleagues organizing events to raise funds to help gather supplies to send to Nicaragua to needy families during natural disasters such as Hurricane Mitch in 1998. The foundation also started working in South Florida, where the main offices are located, doing fundraising for several projects in Nicaragua and projects in Miami.

Education

 

We believe education is the most effective long-term solution to poverty.  We work to improve children’s life by helping them learn to read, succeed in school and develop the literacy skills they need to improve their lives.

  •  We hire and train nearly all of our staff from around the regions where we work. Their knowledge informs and shapes our program, which we tailor to each project
  • Long-term commitment is a must. We provide resources, consulting, training, and materials when the community requests our assistance and continues to make progress toward improving education for children.
  • Flexibility is key. We recognize that we don’t have all the answers. By listening closely to the people who participate in our program, we continually adapt, innovate and improve, so it most effectively serves the people involved. Flexibility is crucial to success in the communities where we work.
  • Organizational integrity is vital. We operate an efficient and streamlined organization. We consistently devote nearly all of our income to programs.

Every year of school a child completes represents an estimated 15 percent increase in their future annual income. Education improves maternal, child and family health. It decreases violent crime and improves the overall economic health of communities.
