We collected books from our communities to be used either in the classrooms or the school library. The teachers had great fun selection books for their classrooms! We are busy investigating exciting programmes to benefit Grade 1 children who have missed out on a basic education foundation.
We have been working closely with Edgemead Primary School, Table View Library and The Bookery to get the school library up and running, after the school’s move to a new building. We are working closely with the WCED to ensure that our goals are aligned with theirs. We are also working with Mothers who Care in delivering sandwiches made to Sophakama.
Should you wish to assist us, whether as a volunteer or providing much needed resources, please contact Callie Lewis on 082 902 8775.
