OUR “CAN-DO” CONTAINERS

One of Breadline Africa’s most successful enterprises has been its provision of renovated shipping containers for various uses. Since 1993, Breadline Africa has provided over 175 containers to poverty-stricken communities across South Africa.

 

 

Cans4Feeding

Hunger and poverty create a vicious cycle: hungry adults are literally too weak to work or look for work; hungry children are too tired to absorb the learning that might lift them out of their wretched circumstances. And hunger is so cruel – it returns again and again.

Cans4Learning

Education holds the key to a better future – for each child – and the world. As Robert F. Kennedy once said: “The greatest truth must be recognition that in every man, in every child is the potential for greatness.”

Cans4Hygiene

Diarrhoea, bronchitis, hepatitis – for babies and toddlers, these infections often spell out a death sentence, especially in the poorer areas where Breadline Africa works. We know that “prevention is better than cure” quite simply saves lives.

The ability to provide opportunities for recreation and sport and the opportunity to dream are critical to changing individual’s paradigms and breaking the cycles of despair and hopelessness.

Cans4Reading

In this programme containers are refurbished into libraries which are placed in impoverished schools and areas around South Africa. Given that only about 20% of schools in South Africa have functioning libraries, these containers provide a real impetus towards promoting literacy in schools.
