Hundreds of children are daily being draw to our soup kitchens to receive a meal.
The idea behind the 'Give a book' initiative is to use this opportunity to let the children make the best of the time they spend at the soup kitchens, by having them read children's books found in our 'mini-libraries'.
“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” – Margaret Fuller
The children do not have access to a library close to their homes, so using the soup kitchens as a base, they can now have an opportunity to get reading and learning.
For this purpose we want to establish 'mini-libraries' at all our soup kitchens and therefore need good children books, whether old or new.
Books can be dropped off at the Dutch Reformed Church (87 Beach Road, Gordon's Bay) between 9:00 and 12:00 Monday to Friday or please arrange for collection (079 511 4429 or (O/H) 021 856 0472). Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
