A Day in the Life of our Bakers

Our Mission

Celebrate Life SA is an organisation aimed at creating awareness and facilitating support across society  to alleviate human and environmental suffering , using the energy of committed individuals,  social networks  and  broadcast platforms.

The essence of Celebrate Life SA lies in respect for the land and its people. A group of caring people, who have known each other and worked together for many years, became inspired to establish a project that not only made use of their individual talents, but also confronted some of the more serious issues facing our planet, with the express purpose of ameliorating as many of these issues as possible.

“Celebrate Life has placed in excess of 200 Ubuntu Microbakeries in 200 communities. Each oven produces  4 loaves of bread every half an hour . One loaf of bread provides 13 slices of bread which equates to feeding 6 children per loaf of bread baked. This means that 40 loaves a day provide 240 children with a sandwich daily. If we take into account all 200 ovens, Celebrate Life has helped to feed 48000 children every single day. We have improved the lives of more than 600 women and their communities. This sustainable project and the impact it has on communities is huge and growing daily. We are so proud of the ladies who have empowered and uplifted themselves with the Ubuntu Microbakeries.”

The opportunity – By finding ways to support and invest in local businesses and causes, Global partners can foster this beautiful concept of Ubuntu, being of service to their neighbours, communities and citizens. 

This is a critical concept that can catalyse momentous change in South Africa. While it is challenging to see this type of change overnight, little – even tiny – contributions can make a difference in at least one person’s life.While governments across the globe, including our own, have committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), there is a responsibility by each and every one of us to not only be aware of these goals, but to work towards them, even if in some small waThe first SDG is about eradicating poverty, highlighting how there are over 800 million people in the world living on less than R15 a day. Basic human rights such as clean drinking water, nutrition and sanitation are not met for the poor. What’s more is that the UN has found that “Women are more likely to live in poverty than men due to unequal access to paid work, education and property.”

There is an age old saying: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”

If we are to end poverty by 2030, there needs to be a commitment by each and every one of us to look after the vulnerable and find solutions for increasing access to basic resources and services..

Through the Ubuntu Breadmaking Oven project, Celebrate Life aims to fulfil the following:

  • Education foundation
  • Creating employability
  • Accelerating skills development
  • Private vs public partnerships
  • Creating leaders
  • Building entrepreneurs
  •  Providing employment choices
  • Opening doors of opportunity
