Books for rural school library

Personal message

Along with three friends I am a volunteer at the Curry's Post Primary school in the Midlands of Kwazulu-Natal, where we run a library, story time for Grades 1 to 3 and reading groups for Grades 4 to 7.  All the children are from underprivileged homes and some have no parents.   Despite this, they are delightful kids and love the library, and are making good progress with literacy.   The school is a real little gem with caring and enthusiastic teachers, and we are trying to help the kids as much as we can.   The Curry's Post Educational Trust was formed in 1993 by residents of the Curry's Post area to support the school.   All money raised by this campaign will be administered by the Curry's Post Educational Trust and not a single cent will be wasted.   For more information see www.curryspostprimary.org
