Books for Africa! Local mobile library project receives donation of 2 600 children’s story books
"This is a reality that Nal’ibali is firmly committed to changing because access to books and stories is integral to a literate society," Jade Jacobsohn, Nal’ibali’s Managing Director, says.

South Africa’s reading for enjoyment campaign, Nal’ibali, recently received a huge boost from international online community, Global Citizen Africa.

The community of activists just donated 2 600 children’s story books to Nal’ibali's Story Power in Motion initiative, the NGO's mobile library project operating in selected South African townships in KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape, the Western Cape and Gauteng.

Jade Jacobsohn, Nal’ibali’s Managing Director, thanked Global Citizen for the donation and echoed the sentiment that there are so few books in the homes of the average South African child, and that most parents rarely read to their children.

"This is a reality that Nal’ibali is firmly committed to changing because access to books and stories is integral to a literate society," she says.
