Background 

Bourofaye Christian School, founded in 1980, was originally situated about 10km from Ziguinchor, the regional capital of the Casamance in the south of Senegal. In August 1997, the school was evacuated because of unrest in the region and a temporary site was found in the village of Keur Massar, 25 kilometres from the capital, Dakar. 

In October 2002, the school reopened on its present site at Kiniabour, 70 km southeast of Dakar. 

Surroundings and facilities 

The school is within relatively easy access of Dakar, with its wide range of shops, services and its international airport. Dakar has hospitals, private GPs and dentists and there are good medical facilities, hospitals and clinics, in the city of Thiès too. Thiès is about 30km away and is very handy for shopping with its colourful markets and supermarkets. 

Set in the village of Kiniabour, the 6.5-hectare compound is surrounded by a wall. There is ample space  outside for our students to use and we have the benefit of a very large sports’ hall too. Buildings are constructed of cement brick with aluzinc roofs. There is a well on site that provides for all of our water needs and we have mains electricity along with a back-up generator system. The compound has plenty of shade. 

The Vision and Mission of BCS 

We want to see Bourofaye Christian School students and staff knowing, loving and learning to be like Jesus. BCS serves the families of missionaries by providing excellent education in a Christ-centred community to extend the kingdom of God.
