Sony Collects 11,700 Books for South African Children

As part of its annual South Africa Mobile Library Project, Sony announced that it has collected a total of 11,700 children’s books this year. The programme, started in 2008, is dedicated to help raise literacy levels for children living in South Africa.
This year’s donation saw the participation of 10 schools here in Singapore, where students from Anglo-Chinese School (Barker Road), River Valley Primary School, and Saint Nicholas Girls’ School were not only placed in charge of the collection of books, but also had to learn how to efficiently sort out to books to cater to the different education levels over in South Africa.
In addition, this year’s project saw the introduction of new initiatives such as Book Review, where students could personalise their donated books with either a short summary or a personal message addressed to the book’s future readers.
The National Library Board also donated books this year as part of their continuous support towards the project’s cause.
The South Africa Mobile Library Project has to date collected more than 130,000 books through joint initiatives by Sony companies worldwide.
