My story

[p]HELPING BREADLINE AFRICA FUND A NEW CLASSROOM AT IZIBONELE EDUCARE CENTRE.[/p][p]During last year's lockdown, a winter rainstorm caused the church wall to collapse and fall onto Izibonele Educare Centre in Cape Town, South Africa. The SACC runners will be running the 2021 Virtual London Marathon to raise much-needed funds to provide a 12m converted shipping container classroom for the centre. A new classroom will go a long way towards restoring their pre-school and giving the children their own comfortable, safe space for learning.[/p][p][br][/p][p]THE SOUTH AFRICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE RUNNERS[/p][p]These are the runners who will be raising funds and completing the 42.2km virtual marathon:[/p][p]Sharon Constancon[/p][p]Reg Vincent[/p][p]Abigail Vincent[/p][p]Erica Humphries[/p][p]Annette Christie[/p][p][br][/p][p]ABOUT OUR CAUSE:[/p][p]Breadline Africa, the biggest supplier of converted shipping containers for poverty relief in Southern Africa, has provided 700 containers to resource-poor communities and plans to bring this total to 1,000 in the next three years, benefiting more than 250,000 children. The renovated containers are used as early childhood development centres (pre-schools – providing educational support to children between the ages of one and six years), school libraries to promote literacy, and community kitchens and toilet blocks. Particular attention is given to rural and under-resourced communities.[/p][p]Availability of quality pre-schools that provide an environment where children can be prepared for primary school is one of the most effective means of breaking the cycle of poverty in South Africa. A comprehensive pre-school also includes a kitchen for staff to prepare healthy, nutritious meals for the children and connected water-borne toilets to improve hygiene and sanitation for the children and teachers alike.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Breadline Africa believes that every child deserves a better future and a chance to escape the cycle of poverty through educational opportunities.[/p][p][br][/p][p]In addition, Breadline Africa supports:[/p][p]· Emergency feeding programmes in poor communities to alleviate hunger.[/p][p]· Various initiatives for children and their families, including food parcel drives, outings and educational events.[/p][p]Breadline Africa is also registered with the UK Charities Commission.[/p][p]For more info visit their website: [url=http://www.breadlineafrica.org]www.breadlineafrica.org[/url][/p]
