What we do

The Cinnamon Bun Project is a Swedish non-profit that strives to improve educational standards in the townships of South Africa. Since the beginning of this project in 2011, we have been raising funds and awareness about our mission. Throughout the years, we’ve worked with different projects in creches and orphanages. One of our biggest projects so far has been to expand the creche Noluthando, situated in the township Langa, by building a second floor to the school. The constructions were finalized in 2014, and now the creche can admit more children. By increasing the actual space and adding more rooms children of different ages can be taught separately which improves the overall level of education. All education is taught by the correct curriculum, and all renovations of the site have been according to South African fire, health, and environmental standards.

Our projects

We also are engaged in students that have enrolled in Noluthando but is now studying at different high schools, and we call this project sponsor-a-student. By being a sponsor of a student you help the families to pay parts of the tuition costs so that these high performing students can attend good schools. We are completely funded by our donors, so your support is truly appreciated! Support The Cinnamon Bun Project

Thank you all friends of the Cinnamon Bun Project for your generous donations; it is because of you that we can make an impact for the South African youth!

The picture below is taken during our annual meeting with the students, together with the enthusiastic and diligent organizer Vuyokazi. Some of the students strive to become designers, some accountants. One of the girls says that she is dreaming about becoming president in South Africa one day. We encourage all our students to dream big and protect those dreams.

This is the transformation of Noluthando. The extra space has been key in the development of the school. By enabling more children to enroll at a well-developed creche we are improving the lookout for South Africa.

Pictures were taken during our presentation at Odd Fellow, Göteborg. We were amazed by the enthusiasm and support that Odd Fellow showed us. It is because of generous organizations like these that we can achieve our dream.

Below are some of the first investments we did in 2011. At this time we understood that there was a big need for more space, and since then we have been working on raising funds to build the 2nd floor, which was finalized in 2014.
