When a child’s imagination is unlocked, possibilities are opened up, allowing them to choose a path for their own future. Breadline Africa enables this journey by providing initiatives and infrastructure to support childhood development in Southern Africa. The renovated containers and prefabricated units are used as early childhood development centres (pre-schools), community kitchens, toilet blocks and primary school libraries.

Breadline Africa’s primary goal is to not only help children do better in school by ensuring that they have safer spaces to learn in. It’s difficult to focus on learning when the roof is leaking and the temperatures drop in winter. Teachers also struggle to teach in poor conditions. Many units that Breadline Africa replaces are unsafe and cramped – hot in summer and cold in winter.

In the library project, the knowledge that there is a dedicated space to read – to develop a love of reading … to lose oneself in a book – is invaluable. It’s a haven from the noise and demands of home and a doorway to a completely different world.

We believe that through partnerships, we will achieve our 2023 goal. We currently have 21 formal partnerships with NPO organisations that support literacy development in primary schools and feeding, practitioner training, educational resources and support at ECD centres.
