The #Coinage Book Drive – First Leg



In 2013 we held  a book drive for our first beneficiary, a start-up community library in Puthaditjhaba. QwaQwa run by Nyakallo Lephoto. We received a lovely collection of paper and hardbacks, mostly South African novels covering a variety of topics.

Most books were in excellent condition, assuring many more readings and the collection is currently on its way to QwaQwa.

We are still receiving steady donations which give us an ability to expand, reaching more facilities and supply new and replacement books to those where we are already working.

Great thanks to all those who donated, we’re still receiving requests for various books all over the country.

It was Dr. Seuss who once said that “the more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” and we agree.

The #Coinage Book Drive is an initiative to collect and distribute new and used books to various community libraries across South Africa.

We aim improve and promote literacy and to instill a passion for reading in various communities across the country.

Our beneficiaries so far:

  • a community library run by Nyakallo Lephoto in Phuthaditjhaba (near QwaQwa) – fiction in Sesotho and English
  • a homework centre run by Maki Mokhine of Realogile High School in Alexandra – newspapers, magazines and books
  • an entrepreneurial library run by FadedBlack Innovations in Bekkersdal (near Westonaria) – mostly business manuals and books

Help us give the gift of reading across South Africa!

Don’t hesitate to contact us regarding donations.
