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 disfunctional 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 compehension skills, vocabulary and imagination.

By allowing learners access the books, we hope to engender their love of reading and improve their literacy skills.
