The SA Chamber of Commerce UK is supporting Breadline Africa this New Year to help raise much-needed funding to ensure that all the young learners at the Zanokhanyo Educare Centre, in Khayelitsha, Western Cape can have clean toilets and a hygienic place for their food to be prepared.  

Help support childhood development in Southern Africa through early childhood education and infrastructure initiatives.

A percentage of the funds raised will also go towards creating future income opportunities for the community of Genadendal through the restoration of one of the oldest (1896) watermills in South Africa.


Principal Ntombodidi Barnes established her pre-school in 1995 and was fortunate to receive formal registration from the government for the facility. Over the years, the infrastructure deteriorated in the harsh African weather, and in 2017, the centre was de-registered, and the subsidies withdrawn.

Drawing on all of her resources, Ntombodidi was able to build precast vibracrete classrooms but lacked funding to build a kitchen and to replace the portable chemical plastic potties.

With your valuable contributions, we hope to raise funds to provide the Zanokhanyo Educare Centre with a hygienic kitchen facilities and safe private toilets that give privacy and respect to the young learners.

We understand times are not easy, so even a very small contribution will be welcomed by the young learners, giving them the best start in life. Every penny counts, we are almost there, help us finish the journey. 

Keep an eye out for the happy faces and photos that will be shared to the SA Chamber UK website and LinkedIn pages.

Let's give these children a safe and nurturing environment to grow and learn in and unlock a child’s imagination and open up their possibilities.

Come together to support a national treasure, the village of  Genadendal, in Cape Town. Our mission is simple – to fulfil a dream of rebuilding and maintaining a historic village by aiding it in becoming financially independent and self-sufficient with the restoration of the Genadendal village mill.

Join the South African Chamber of Commerce to raise funds needed to have the mill operating daily once more.  The objective is to ensure the mill is up and running and for it to become a self-sustaining tourist attraction, creating employment for the local village.  Donations will also help to get the stone kiln outside the mill operational, creating a central source of income for the village and its residents.
