BKB Africa is a BKB partner company. The campaign agency operates from Cape Town, South Africa. During the years BKB has gained a great deal of experience running extensive public campaigns linked to themes such as democratisation, healthcare, security and education.

In 2010, we contributed to a pan-African Aids awareness campaign Fair Play for Africa, which culminated in an Aids awareness festival in the King Zwelithini stadium in Umlazi (Durban’s largest township) during the FIFA World Cup. Besides working for the Dutch National Football Association (KNVB), we supervised a special sports trip for the Netherlands Broadcasting Authority (NOS).

In 2011, BKB Africa played an important role in the large-scale Saldanha Clean Tech Bay project, around the Port of Saldanha in the Western Cape.
