About Us/The Team

 

Breadline Africa is a small group of people who want to make a big difference. In terms of staff, we try to keep our numbers to the absolute minimum. In doing so, we are minimising our overhead costs and ensuring that as much money as possible goes into what really matters – the projects that we support.
