Breadline Africa, one of the biggest suppliers of converted shipping containers for poverty relief in Southern Africa, has provided 619 containers to resource poor communities, and plans to bring this total to 1,000 in the next three years, benefiting more than 250,000 children.\n\nThe renovated containers are used as early childhood development centres (pre-schools – providing educational support to children between the ages of one and six years), school libraries to promote literacy, and community kitchens and toilet blocks. Particular attention is given to rural and under-resourced communities.\n\nAvailability of quality pre-schools that provide an environment where children can be prepared for primary school is one of the most effective means of breaking the cycle of poverty in South Africa.\nA comprehensive pre-school also includes a kitchen for staff to prepare healthy, nutritious meals for the children and connected water-borne toilets to improve hygiene and sanitation for the children and teachers alike.
