Our Mission

The mission of Bread and Water for Africa® is to promote positive change in Africa by supporting and strengthening grassroots initiatives for community and self-sufficiency in health and education.

We accomplish that mission by providing free and extremely low-cost health care services where there previously was none for the most destitute in a community, particularly for mothers, infants and children under 5 years old, as well as shipping hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of medicines and medical supplies to African countries annually.

For Africa’s most vulnerable, the continent’s orphaned and abandoned children, we provide homes where they receive the food they literally need to survive, a roof over their head and a warm bed to sleep in, medical care, an education, and, most important, love from those who thousands who grow up into mature, successful adults, call “mother.”

For the hungry and those in need of food and clean water, we support agricultural programs which provide training and materials to assist farmers how to get the most from their small tracts of land or few dairy cattle in order to provide for their families and dig wells at schools and clinics which not only serve the institutions, but thousands of others in the surrounding communities.

In recognition that education is the key to success in the future, we build schools increasing opportunities for thousands of more children and youth to attend class, as well as pay the school fees for hundreds of children each year in the poorest countries in the world, such as Chad.
