Some of our rural schools are participating in the local Phendulani Quiz. Teams of the best readers in Grade 7 answer questions based on provided books that they have read. Winning teams will win prizes of books as well as certificates of participation.
We need to raise sufficient funds so that the winning learners, from homes without books, can own a selction of special books that will encourage them to love reading. R150 will buy a wonderful book for someone who has never owned a book!
We also require funds to transport the learners to the venue where the quiz will be held. Most of the learners either walk several kilometers to school or catch the local minibus taxis from home to school. A change in schedule means extra expense for the parents who have very limited funds.

Sithanda ukufunda - We love to read
Sithanda ukufunda - We love to read takes reading books to disadvantaged and poorly resourced rural schools on the lower South Coast of KZN and adjoining areas of Eastern Cape. Currently we visit 23 primary schools and 5 high schools allowing learners from Grade R to Grade 9 to benefit from having access to reading and reference books. These schools have NO libraries or very dysfunctional libraries. We have approximately 10 000 books which are packed into grade related boxes and are rotated through the schools every term. Books have been donated by friends, concerned businesses, literacy organisations and more affluent schools.
At some of the schools, we "read aloud" in English to various classes, thereby helping them to develop their listening and comprehension skills, vocabulary and imagination.
By allowing learners access the books, we hope to engender their love of reading and improve their literacy skills.
