In sub-Saharan Africa, roughly 40 percent of children will not spend even one day in a school classroom, amounting to untold millions who will never learn to read or write or do more than the most basic math.

Without even an elementary school education, they will never be able to build better lives for themselves dooming future generations to repeat the cycle of poverty that has entrenched lives of their parents.

Many of these children live in the sub-Saharan African countries of Kenya, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Chad, Zambia and Zimbabwe where thanks to the supporters of Bread and Water for Africa®, we are able to fund our school fee program enabling them to realize their greatest dream of going to school, providing them hope for a brighter future.

For 20 years, we have been partnering with our local partners in those countries to provide an education for the orphaned and impoverished children in our belief that literacy and education is the key not only to their future but to the future of the entire continent.
