General Information 

Born in Africa is a non-profit organisation, active in socio-economically disadvantaged areas around Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.

Education is one of the fundamental rights of all children. Therefore, we are committed to the long-term educational development of underprivileged children in South Africa. A solid education provides solutions for these children, equipping them to get out of hopeless situations- often dominated by poverty, abuse, and unemployment. Only when these children are given the opportunity to obtain a decent education, will they have any hope of entering the labour market.

With education, we come one step closer to social and economic equality.

Our mission

Our mission is to develop well rounded, independent, and successful young adults acting as role models in their communities by providing educational and social support to school going children and young adults from disadvantaged areas in Bitou, South Africa.

Values & Philosophy

Education is a basic right for every child and Born in Africa believes that training will determine the future. By giving children access to proper education and providing guidance, BIA increases each child’s chances of finding employment. This way, Born in Africa wants to build towards a better social-economic future.

Target group

Children in our program range from the age of 6 years old to young adolescents (25 year), living in disadvantaged areas of Bitou.
