school for orphaned children”

Who we are

Since 2004, Bread and Water for Africa UK has been fighting poverty, relieving hunger and increasing access to healthcare and education in some of the world’s poorest countries. By working with local grass-roots organisations we have helped to fund schools, lifesaving health clinics and loving homes for abandoned and orphaned children.

Rather than relying on hand-outs, we help communities create their own opportunities and take charge of their own future by investing in long-term, grass-roots initiatives. With your support we can continue to give communities across Africa the chance to live a life full of hope and opportunity.

one

Spreading hope through education

We passionately believe that education is the only way to break the cycle of poverty in Africa, which is why we’re determined to help even more communities build schools and offer education scholarships – and give even more children the start in life they deserve

three

Caring for children

More than 15 million children in Africa have lost their parents to AIDS. Providing shelter and a stable, fostering environment to vulnerable orphans is vital for the future of communities across Africa, which is why we support children’s homes in Zambia, Kenya, Mozambique, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe.

two

Bringing healthcare to stricken communities

After a terrible civil war tore the country apart, families across Sierra Leone were left without access to healthcare. By rebuilding and staffing clinics and supplying medicines we can stop the spread of disease, provide vaccinations for potentially life-threatening diseases and give pregnant women a safe, caring place to give birth.

four

A helping hand

Giving people the ability to earn a living for themselves means they can take control of their lives and start to lift themselves out of crippling poverty. Whether it’s vocational training programmes, skill-sharing or the donation of extra livestock to start a sustainable breeding herd, we help people unlock their potential and achieve a future free from poverty.
