What we do/Container Programme

 

 

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.

Containers are used as:
Cans4Reading: libraries and media centres in schools
Cans4Feeding: community kitchens, serving food to the very poor;
Cans4Learning: day-care centres for children;
Cans4Hygiene: health clinics and ablution blocks
Cans4Skills: classrooms for teaching vocational skills
Cans4Clubs: sports club changing rooms

Our containers provide affordable, safe, versatile and inexpensive shelter for many projects, and if necessary they can be relocated easily to new locations.
Container applications are screened by a Container Committee, which meets once a month to assess them and allocate funds for container renovations.
