Amazing Estates ''Born in Africa''

With Prodecom / Amazing Estates we would like to stimulate the local economy and contribute to social projects. As Co-founder of Born in Africa, Prodecom / Amazing Estates has made a difference to the street childeren and in adult education programs.

In 2002 Isabelle de Smull-Brink started together with Amazing Estates ''Born in Africa''. We took the initative to start an educational adoption project. Now, after some years the project has grown thanks to the dedication of all who are involved.

Born in Africa (BIA) is an organization which has no associations with any political or religious organizations. Our main goal is to give children an honest chance to a decent education. Currently we are active in four primary schools (Harkerville, Wittedrift, Kranshoek and Crags), one secondary school (Plettenberg Bay) and two crèches (Qolweni and Crags), in the broader communities of Plettenberg Bay.

Raising and supporting a child is not easy in any society. It is thus extremely more difficult for South African families who are unemployed, illiterate and living in the hardships of a township. A tremendous challenge!

We want to do something to alleviate this struggle! South Africa is a country with a challenging past. Even with the abolishment of Apartheid there still remains inequality between the people. This is indicated in high crime rates, communicable diseases like HIV/aids, and high unemployment. We therefore aim our interest at the youth, because they are the future of any society.

The South African government invests money in aids-prevention and fighting crime, with only a minimal amount of money directed at education. Consequently schools must therefore ask an annual fee, of which many families can not afford. The outcome of this, is that many children are kept at home and many schools do not have enough funds to invest in a decent educational structure.

Together with all motivated volunteers and board members, you can also help this project. Please visit Born in Africa's website more information.
