Our Vision for Education

Bread and Water for Africa® realizes that education is not a key to success for African children, but THE key to success. Ensuring that ALL children – orphaned, abandoned and destitute – have the opportunity to build a better life for themselves through education is essential.
THE CHALLENGES
WHAT Bread and Water for Africa® IS DOING

Through our school fee assistance program, we pay school fees for hundreds of impoverished primary and secondary school- age children who otherwise would have no opportunity for an education. In addition, with your support, we have constructed schools, such as the Kipkeino Primary School in Kenya, and are nearing completion of the Logos Academy Dr. Kenneth Gerdes School in Sierra Leone which is expected to be finished by fall 2017. In addition, We have recently funded the construction of additional classrooms and a laboratory at the new Kebeneti Secondary School in Kenya.

WHERE AND WHO WE WORK WITH

Education is key to sustaining democracies, improving health, increasing per capita income and conserving environmental resources. Promoting literacy and education for African children and youth ensures a promising future for development in Africa.
