About this BCBWA Event

During this luncheon we will be hearing from Co-Founder and Director at Brain Child Fund, Jana Viljoen! Brain Child Fund is a nonprofit organization that helps special needs families move from surviving to thriving.

Jana Viljoen and her husband Hannes are a South African couple who have four children, three of them have special needs. Ten years ago, the couple attended a parent training course in Pennsylvania. This training was transformative and the therapy techniques which they applied, resulted in their children making more progress in four months than in the preceding three years of conventional therapy.

Hannes and Jana realized two things namely 1) they found a solution for their children and it would be too expensive to fly up and down with the kids for the evaluations every few months and 2) they had an undeniable call upon their hearts to bring this program to other South African special needs families who don’t have access to these techniques. They were advised by one of the wise directors to focus on their own children first – private victory before public victory and that’s exactly what they did. They sold everything they owned, boarded a plane to the USA and dedicated themselves full-time to rehabilitating their children for eighteen months. The results were incredible. 

They returned to South Africa for a short time, founded Brain Child Fund their nonprofit and started a movement that brings Hope for the future, Truth for the now and Support for the journey for the special needs community. They started sharing their story and spreading awareness through media, edutainment, public speaking engagements and interactive music shows.

The cost for this event which will include lunch and non-alcoholic beverages is $30 for ABWA Bucks County members and $35 for non-members.
