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, Bread and Water for Africa® pays 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

We are working in 16 countries to provide safe and loving homes to over 200 children.

For nearly two decades, Bread and Water for Africa® partners operating on the grassroots level in African villages and local communities have been working to provide loving homes for orphaned and abandoned children. This includes the basic necessities of food, clean water, health care, as well as education so that they can build better lives as they enter adulthood.

OUR IMPACT IN 2016

More than 3,000 students from the Albert Academy in Freetown benefited from 22,000 textbooks and reference books shipped to the school through the Bread and Water for Africa® Bright Minds program.

In Sierra Leone, 1,006 students received primary and secondary school education provided by Faith Healing Development Organization’s four nursery schools, four primary schools and three secondary schools.

In Ethiopia, 12,400 secondary school students benefited from 22,000 textbooks and reference books shipped to the country and distributed to 20 high school libraries.
