How You Can Help us Build a Library…

Posted: April 11, 2011 in Projects

The Rooigrond Informal Settlement is characterised with poverty, something which can change through education and empowerment. However, education and empowerment require resources, resources which the community has no access to at this point in time.

These resources can be gained through the establishment of a library in the Informal Settlement, something which sounds like a monumental task, but can become a reality of we all work together. The children, youth and community as a whole require access to books and the benefits that go along with them, information and education.

Becoming a part of making this a reality is not difficult at all, anyone can. Start a book collection for our library; help us create networks with potential partners; connect us with people, companies and organisations who could assist with building material, equipment and the furniture required. The means are so many, all u have to do is select that which is most convenient for you, it’s that simple.

The possibilities are endless, if we all work together and a library in the Informal Settlement would not only go a long way in providing a centre of education for the community, but would also create hope- hope for a better future for all.
