EVENT: Joberg2C 2020
01 June 2019 - 01 September 2020

Hi Everyone

I have decided to take on Joberg2C again in 2020. However this time I would like to do something for others as part of the challenge.

The Mandela Day Library Campaign is to provide children in rural communities with a library. The library is constructed from an old shipping container (12 meter) that is purchase by Participate for Good, and revamped with all windows, doors, carpets, lights, electricity and insulation as well as painting with Sponsored logos.

The libraries are then stocked with over 1000 books and delivered as fully functional units to a disadvantaged school identified by the Department of Education in conjunction with Soul Buddies, a 200 000 strong kids organisation who help identify the schools.


The libraries vary in price,but an average unit complete will be in the region of almost R250 000.00. (£14 000)

Every little bit will be greatley appreciated.

 

Nelson Mandela - Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
