The first BCC (‘Bethlehem Community Centre’) was opened in Soweto in 1994, and now provides a home for 100 orphaned and vulnerable children, and a pre-primary and primary school for about 240 students. There is also a community library and a church. At BCC Mwea, there is a home for 70 at risk and orphaned boys and girls who attend the local primary and secondary schools.
The BCC kids are aged from 5 to 18 years old. They share common stories of abandonment, abuse and loss before coming to BCC.
CEO of Tropixel, Florian Stotz, was born in Kenya and lived there until he was 11. Speaking on the launch of the new site, Stotz said “We’re delighted to be involved with a charity that has such a positive impact on some of the world’s most vulnerable people. My ties to Kenya are strong having spent the first few years of my life there and I couldn't be happier that this new site is enabling BCC Africa to do more great work."
