Born in Africa

Together we can make a difference

development in children
Born in Africa

Born in Africa is a non-profit organisation, active in socio-economically disadvantaged areas around Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. 

Education is one of the fundamental rights of all children. Therefore, we are committed to the long term educational development of underprivileged children in South Africa. A solid education provides solutions for these children, equipping them to get out of hopeless situations- often dominated by poverty, abuse, and unemployment. Only when these children are given the opportunity to obtain a decent education, will they have any hope of entering the labor market.

Education is the key to coming one step closer to social and economic equality!

Our mission is to develop well rounded, independent, and successful young adults acting as role models in their communities by providing educational and social support to school going children and young adults from disadvantaged areas in the Bitou area, South Africa.

Target group: Children in our program range from the age of 6 years old to young adolescents, all living in disadvantaged areas of the Bitou district.

We help children choose a positive path in life, and support them to make this path a reality
