Reviews for Bread And Water For Africa

Rating: 5 stars  

The Children of the Lewa Children's Home (orphanage) have benefited from the support of Bread and Water for Africa for many years. Through the help of BWA the Lewa Children's Home was able to provide them not only with love, care, protection and shelter but the nursery and primary school, Kipkeino School, being part of the Home gave them an excellent preparation for the rest of their life. Thank you on behalf of all the children. BWA has changed their life and gave them a future.

Bread and Water for Africa has been dedicated for more then 30 years to help orphaned, abandoned and needy children in the Kenyan society. BWA provided medical care, clothing and school materials but did not just provide food... Instead BWA helped to develop a large scale farming enterprise which grows food for the children and processes milk into yoghurt, butter milk and cheese which is sold all over Kenya to generate income for the Home. The Baraka Farm is that way has been an example to many thousands of visitors, farmers, students and other charitable organization in the past. Adjacent to the Baraka Farm, BWA helped to build a nursery and primary school know as Kipkeino School which has educated children from the Lewa Children's Home since 2000 and many more to come in the future

BWA helped through Baraka Farm more then 1000 small holder farmers over the past years. Many thousands farmers from the East African region visited and over 250 farmers have been trained during a weeks stay at Baraka Farm in the past 2 years.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The Baraka Farm supports not only the Lewa Children's Home but it has been an example to thousands of farmers over the years who have copied its ideas of climate change preparedness like rainwater harvesting, improving crop yield through improved soil fertility. I would continue to support Baraka Farm for them to be able to keep on being an example in sustainable farming and helping the Children of the Lewa Children's Home (orphanage)

Bread and Water for Africa helps so many in Africa in so many ways. From clean water to orphan care - they really make the difference. Their volunteer spokesperson is a mother to many orphans and her Baraka Farm feeds the children and provides an income for the orphanage. Education is an important part of healing Africa and their education programs help so many. I support them!

Bread and Water for Africa has been doing great work in countries throughout Africa for years. They support programs that create self-sufficiency in Africa. Their programs provide necessities such as clean water and more but also educate - building a stronger future for Africa.

I've just recently donated to Bread and Water for Africa and I am very impressed at less than one percent of the money donated to Bread and Water for Africa is going to administration expenses leaving over 99% going to the programs!
