Welcome to Born in Africa


We aim to stimulate social and educational development in children who live in poverty, striving to create economically self-sustainable adults

Born in Africa provides academic, social and life skill programmes to children who live in the townships in the Bitou area of South Africa.  The academic programme focuses on education and tertiary studies.  The social programme is driven by individual mentorship.  Our life skills programme enriches our learners by exposing them to life outside their rather limited daily routine.
