Every child has the capacity to do something
phenomenal with his or her life.

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 through early childhood education.

Lives we have touched

  • “It’s been a wonderful thing to see the joy and excitement in the eyes of our children as the library started taking shape. We’re excited to open the doors and let the children enjoy the incredible resource that has been created for them. With its imaginative design and bright colours, the children don’t even have to go into the library to gain from the experience.”

  • “I would like to thank all the donors and partners who had made this donation possible. I can assure you that reading periods will become the norm at the school – and having the infrastructure to do so will make all the difference in helping our children to learn – not just to read, but to love reading!”

  • "I would like to thank the Old Mutual Two Oceans runners, Cape Town Cycle Tour cyclists and donors who helped make this new container a reality. Before, it was difficult and even dangerous to cook in the classroom, so I would have to wake up at 04h00 to start preparing meals at my home. On the day that the container arrived, I was like a young child – beyond excited! I even got out of bed on the first night to make sure it was real and still there. I will keep thanking you all until the sun goes down.”
