The Siyafunda Donate a Book initiative which started in 2015, refurnishing unused classrooms to libraries, book clubs and reading clubs in rural primary schools across the country has handed a library to Mokobola primary school at Mabocha.
The organisation which has its headquarters in Gauteng upgraded a classroom at the school to a complete library.
The library also has five desktops as well as numerous literacy and numeracy books for the young ones.
“We also provides rural learners with children’s story books, text books, reading for pleasure books, to help them improve their vocabulary, pronunciation, comprehension, concentration, communication, critical thinking skills, confidence and problem solving skills,” said the organisation’s Katiki Mofokeng.
Mokobola’s principal MJ Dibakwane thanked the organisation for handing over the library.
“We are a rural school and this library will help in transforming our kids into excellent pupils. We appreciate Siyafunda for choosing our school.”
Siyafunda Donate a Book is an educational programme under “The Web Foundation” it is fully registered at the Department of Social Development and is SARS compliant NPO.
This was the 42 library to be opened by Siyafunda since 2015 and second e-library in Limpopo.
Siyafunda’s aim is to drive reading awareness through accessibility to much needed remote rural primary schools to equip learners with life-long learning skills, enabling them to live as responsible citizens.
