Since 2009 we have developed libraries to bring good reading material to the host community and in particular to indigent communities. We have partnered with Government, corporate organisations and families on this programme. We have set up 3 full libraries and 13 ‘seed’ libraries which consist of branded book shelves containing about 500 books which we donate to communities which have neither the facility nor the resource for a full-fledged library. It is hoped that this seed planted would encourage the recipient and other donors to eventually develop a proper library.
