Reading books for early learning classrooms #MandelaDay

Every teacher will tell you: a great selection of books can help turn reading time into fun time! Plus, early learning literacy is a key goal of this year's international #MandelaDay initiative. 

We've identified 10 books that we would love every GROW Educare Centre to have in their reading corner: a combination of international classics, locally written stories, and even word-free books to inspire, stimulate and grow young minds.  

100 classrooms each need a set of books.
R125 allows us to give one book.
R1250 helps us equip a classroom. (USD87 or EUR72)

Our Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres are based in under-resourced communities and townships in the Western Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. 

How to take action:

1. Donate a book set online via GivenGain.
2. Host a reading morning: Purchase a collection of books from your local book store and deliver it to our office or host a fun reading morning at a local preschool! You can read, dress up, host a puppet show - anything to bring literacy to life! (Please arrange with our Fundraiser). 
3. Previously loved books: If you donate second-hand books, we will distribute these on your behalf.
