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.

What we have achieved so far







Our recent launches

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.”

    Mr Shahid Mathews

  • "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.”

    Ms Nonzuzo Mzinyathi
    Ms Nonzuzo Mzinyathi Principal of Lukhanyiso Educare Centre
  • “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!”

We have placed 116 libraries around the country which serve thousands of children. We believe in the power of libraries and the impact they have on young children. Learning to love reading builds knowledge, gives tremendous pleasure and encourages deeper thinking and discussion.

We want to celebrate our 27th birthday by filling our new libraries with quality reading material and we need your help! Donate and help us provide thousands more children access to fun storybooks in low quintile schools.

Let's get books into the hands of more children: Donate here: breadlineafrica.org/donate-2/ and use the reference ‘books’ when making your donation.

Rise Against Hunger (RAH) has a simple mandate to end hunger by empowering communities, nourishing lives and responding to emergencies. The Breadline Africa team partnered with RAH at one of their incredible meal packing events. Friends and family members were roped in to help pack bags of nutritious food ingredients which feeds up to 6 people. We were thrilled to have 10 members of the RBS team joining us for this fun event.

During the course of 3 hours, we packed the equivalent of 20,000 meals which will be distributed by RAH and Breadline Africa to those in need. A big thank you to every volunteer who came to help, to Councillor Rossouw and the City for the use of the hall in Steenberg and to the RAH team - your enthusiasm is infectious and your passion to make a difference, made the day a wonderful experience for all!

If any corporate is keen to sponsor an event, please let us know and together with RAH, we can guarantee your staff a very memorable few hours.
