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.

There is, however, still much to be done and we have set ourselves the ambitious target of 1,000 infrastructure development units placed in communities and schools throughout South Africa by 2023, positively impacting on the lives of more than 250,000 children.

We believe that through partnerships, we will achieve this goal.

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.”

Breadline Africa

While so many people are safely inside during lockdown, we don't see those that are homeless and have nowhere to go. 35 adults and young children are waiting in Muizenberg Park to be transported to a camp. This could still be many days away and in the meantime Breadline Africa and Philisa Abafazi Bethu SA are providing meals twice a day. TEARS Animal Rescue helped this morning by taking in two much loved dogs to be fostered over the lockdown. Such sad farewells and so much uncertainty. Thanks to Marilyn from TEARS for coming out to assist us today. If you can help us in anyway please donate via SnapScan in the images below. #enablingfutures #lockdown #covid19 ...
