Bumbo Cares

Love and Support for Every Child.

At Bumbo, we believe every child deserves a bright future. For more than a decade, we have made high quality infant and toddler products that help your little ones sit up on their own, step up to places they can’t yet reach, and build up their confidence as they gain independence and reach important developmental milestones. Our products solve every day parenting challenges, while encouraging child exploration, parent and child interaction and quality family time.

At Bumbo, we also take notice of the hardships and challenges that families in our local community in Pretoria, South Africa face. With your help, we are able to truly make a difference.

In 2005, we formed a non-profit organization to assist the underprivileged and special needs children in our own backyard. Since then, we’ve donated a portion of proceeds from every Bumbo baby product purchase made worldwide back into the community.

Thanks to the support from all of you who have made Bumbo a part of your little ones’ biggest moments, we’ve been able to give back more than 10 million dollars to help families in need in Pretoria since 2005.

We feed and shelter orphans, abused children, new mothers and families affected by poverty or difficult circumstances. We help children build confidence and self-esteem in our state-of-the-art sports center. We provide daycare for children with special needs. We donate products to daycare centers, orphanages and kindergartens in the community.

Because of you, we have been able to build the Bumbo Cares facilities and develop specialized programs that support those in the community who need our help the most.

Through our Bumbo Cares programs, we’ve aided more than 1,200 children, have touched the lives of more than 15,000 students in local schools, and assisted tens of thousands of people in our broader community. But, there is still more work to be done.

My late father, Johan Buitendach, Bumbo’s founder, was passionate about making sure all God’s children are cared for, loved and provided with every opportunity for success. At Bumbo, we share his belief and continue his mission.

From all of us at Bumbo, we thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of the children from Pretoria. Together, we can help build up a better tomorrow.
