Visit by the Deputy-Minister: Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2/2/2013)

The Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs supports SAPESI financially thus enabling us to export the mobile libraries from Japan to South Africa.

On 2 February 2013 Mr. Masaji Matsuyama, the Deputy-Minister, Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, kindly included SAPESI in his busy schedule. He visited the Orlando Children’s Home in Soweto to meet the children, and to observe the Mobile Library bus of the Gauteng Department of Education that was visiting the orphanage. He was impressed with the contribution that the Mobile Library buses from Japan are making to South African education.
