Breadline Africa’s focus is clustered into three main areas:
Shipping containers and prefabricated units converted into functional primary school libraries across South Africa.
Early Childhood Development Centres (pre-schools)
Building classrooms, toilet facilities and or kitchens using converted shipping containers and prefabricated units.
Initiatives and special community projects
Seaside outings, Winter and Christmas feeding programmes in impoverished communities.
Infrastructure investments add up to a brighter future
Breadline Africa’s primary goal is to help children do better in school by ensuring that they have safer spaces to learn in. It’s difficult to focus on learning when the roof is leaking and the temperatures drop in winter. Teachers also struggle to teach when they are worried about the children hurting themselves on a broken board or rusty nail. Many units that Breadline Africa replaces are unsafe and cramped – hot in summer and cold in winter.
The library project provides a dedicated space to read – allowing children to develop a love of reading and the opportunity to lose themselves in a book. It’s a haven from the noise and demands of home and a doorway to a completely different world.
