9 600 English books from Sony Singapore for the North West Provincial Department of Education
At the end of 2016 the Sony group of companies based in Singapore donated 9 600 English children’s books. This donation was handed over to the North West Provincial Department of Education on January 24, 2017.
The students and the teachers from the schools that participated in this project in Singapore sorted the books and kindly included reviews and messages for the South African learners. The donated books will be distributed to the mobile libraries in four education districts in North West Province and will be utilised by the learners.
