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.
Born in Africa is preparing for our 20th birthday in 2023! Celebrations will happen in Belgium and South Africa, up to you to decide which event(s) you want to attend! Let us give you an overview of what to expect...
