Bread and Water for Africa UK works with local grassroots organisations to fight poverty by supporting sustainable projects across Africa. We help fund schools, lifesaving health clinics and loving homes for abandoned and orphaned children in some of the world’s poorest countries.
We focus on long-term initiatives rather than temporary relief efforts, so that our impact lasts for generations to come. We give African communities a hand up, not a handout, to help them become central actors in their own development. We work directly with our partners making sure everything is sourced and arranged locally, to ensure the quickest solution and most cost effective use of our funds. It also means that your donation can be put to effect immediately

Alongside our partners CAPE (Centre d’Aide et de Protection de l’Enfant), we’ve been running the Murakaza School since 2012. Murakaza is located in a slum on the outskirts of Bujumbura, the capital city. Providing the only free school in the area for 200 of the most underprivileged children - as well as training in income generating activities for their parents. Too many of the children at the Murakaza School are severely undernourished, hindering their physical and mental development and robbing them of their futures.
How can I help?
The UN estimates that, every year, almost five million children in developing countries die of malnutrition-related causes. Will you help us change that? In Burundi, one of the poorest countries in the world, it costs just £2 to feed a child for a whole month. By making a donation to Bread and Water for Africa UK today, you can support a wonderful initiative, by providing a daily bowl of fortified porridge that contains all the vitamins and minerals a child urgently needs.
£2 will provide a child in Burundi with a daily portion of fortified porridge for a month.
- £24 will provide a child in Burundi with a daily portion of porridge for a whole year.
- £100 will feed 100 children for a month.
