Khalipha Primary School receives the first of many mobile libraries

Khalipha Primary School pupils express their appreciation to MANCOSA and New Africa Education Foundation for donating the first mobile library.

Providing youth with the opportunity and resources to read is important as inculcating the importance of reading. In 2017, MANCOSA partnered with the Department of Basic Education and New Africa Education Foundation on the current ‘Read-to-Lead’ campaign, which was launched four years ago.

The ‘Read-to-Lead’ campaign is an initiative of the Department of Basic Education and serves to promote access to quality reading material and libraries to less fortunate pupils. The initiative aims to improve literacy levels, especially in rural areas, where pupils are at a higher risk of failing.

As a private higher education institution, MANCOSA is committed to providing quality education and has committed to donating mobile libraries to schools with limited resources.

Teams from MANCOSA and New Africa Education Foundation visited Khalipha Primary School in Umlazi to officially hand over the first mobile library unit, recently. Pupils and teacherswere extremely excited upon the team’s arrival and expressed their gratitude for receiving the valuable gift.

Deputy principal of the school, Ms Zungu said that MANCOSA’s contribution to the school would go a long way in helping them address the low literacy levels plaguing pupil progress.

Associate director at MANCOSA, Mr Sardiwalla motivated the pupils by stressing the importance of education and emphasising the role of reading in academic development. Sardiwalla also mentioned that MANCOSA planned to donate many more mobile libraries during 2018.

The official handover of the mobile library was concluded with a vote of thanks, which was delivered by a pupil from Khalipha Primary.

MANCOSA wishes the pupils, teachers and management at Khalipha Primary School all of the very best for the coming year.
