DWF launches new Eastern Cape book drive

18 May 2015

The Donald Woods Foundation has launched a new Eastern Cape Book Drive to collect good quality, second-hand children’s books, textbooks and books on Xhosa culture and history, in English or Xhosa, as well as Xhosa-language books of any description.

The books will be made available to thousands of under-resourced learners in the impoverished Mbashe region of the Eastern Cape, where the Donald Woods Centre is located and where the DWF runs its multi-pronged health, education and economic development initiatives.

One of these projects involves the promotion of literacy and learning skills by matching rural children with little or no access to learning materials with age-appropriate books and educational resources.

Please assist us in bringing the gift of learning to children who desperately need even the most basic resources.

Currently, donations gratefully accepted at our offices at the Chamberlain Guest House, 61 Chamberlain Rd, Vincent, East London, but we are desperately looking for ways to broaden this appeal to cover a larger region of the Eastern Cape.
