Bole Bible Baptist Church Childcare and Community Development (BBBC) is an Ethiopian Resident Charity, registered with the Charities and Societies Agency of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.
BBBC started its community development work in the 1960s, running a school for deaf children in Bole Sub City, Addis Ababa. However, not so long after the organization emerged, the school is confiscated by the defunct socialist regime.
In 1993, BBBC reorganized and reregistered itself as Bole Bible Baptist Church Childcare and Community Development with the Ministry of Justice and restarted its community development work. Since then, it has been able to register significant growth and achievements year after year. As per the Proclamation 621/2009, BBBC again reregistered under Charities and Societies Agency of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia in October 2009 as an Ethiopian Resident Charity and continued implementing integrated community development programs.
BBBC has the capacity of implementing integrated development projects during the last 20 years. It has also engaged itself in emergency response and recovery/rehabilitation due to drought affected areas in Langano which is brought about by the El-Nino weather condition which occurred in 2015-16. This weather condition has affected most parts of Ethiopia among which Langano area is one of them. BBBC dedicatedly works in poverty reduction with especial emphasis on implementing child focused, community based development approach. It is engaged in health and nutrition, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, agriculture/food security, economic development, micro-enterprise development, climate change, child sponsorship and disaster risk reduction. Throughout its development endeavors, BBBC takes into consideration and mainstreams cross cutting themes such as gender, disability, child protection and marginalized sections of the community.
BBBC’s primary objective is creating access to opportunities for a better standard of living for underprivileged and vulnerable communities, especially children, mothers and youth. In line with this objective, it was able to score the following key achievements over the last five years.
In the education sector, BBBC constructed 20 kindergartens with 20 latrine facilities and water taps extended from nearby waterline. Two high schools and primary schools libraries including 15 additional class rooms furnished with the necessary materials. Consequently, over 20,000 children have directly benefited from these school facility supports.
