In memory of Madiba

Nelson Mandela believed passionately in education as the only sure route to a better life, and we in Breadline Africa are committed to keeping the flame of his legacy burning.

Since 2010 we have been privileged to co-operate with the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory in providing school libraries, in primary schools in deprived areas all over South Africa.

To date we have opened thirty three libraries and the programme continues to develop. We are proud that Irish donors, corporate and individual, have helped to commemorate Nelson Mandela in such a way that allows the children and their teachers grasp their opportunities and to see his vision in action.
