About Us/History




Breadline Africa started when a group of community and social workers living in Africa wanted to bridge the gap between Africa and Europe and raise funds for the poor.

Their experiences in Africa meant that they were able to put the concerns of the communities around them into context and understand the problems that the people of Africa faced on a day-to-day basis. From there they could better identify community projects that could easily succeed with just a little help.

The community and social workers proposed the idea of an alliance to their European friends – one that would prove to benefit their common cause.

Within the year, a board of trustees was established and Breadline Africa was launched in 1993 with a fresh enthusiasm that continues to this day. The special relationship that we have established with Europe has proved to be one of success and substance. We look forward to only improving this relationship in the years to come.
