Pass on the love for reading by donating English language children’s books to the 2019 South Africa Mobile Library Project (SAMLP), organised by the Sony Group of Companies in Singapore.

The international donation drive by Sony is now into its 12th consecutive year. Singapore has been the largest contributor among participating countries, with over 114,000 books donated to-date.

Mobile Libraries initiative in South Africa

Donate Your Children’s Books To The South Africa Mobile Library ProjectDonated books will be sent to South Africa for use in mobile libraries under the South Africa Primary Education Support Initiative (SAFESI) that reaches out to students and teachers in local schools. The initiative was started by Tad Hasunuma, former Managing Director of Sony South Africa.

The mobile libraries are operated by provincial departments of education which use them to loan books to children and teachers at local schools that do not possess these materials. Librarians onboard the mobile libraries also advise teachers at the schools how to select the appropriate books and use them in their lessons.
