Indawo yosizo launched a mobile library for children living in Emzinoni, Ext 11 known as Emavahini.
The library will help the children in the area have the spirit of reading.

There are books raging from grade RR to grade 10.

The mobile library will visit children every Saturday from 11:00 to 13:00 to exchange books and help them with reading.

The aim of the event was to restore dignity and allowing relief to children who struggle on a daily basis.

Ms Zanele Gwebu who is the founder of Indawo Yosizo foundation said she chose those children she sees the passion in them.

Emavahini is a new established township that still lacks electricity installation and other services so the mobile library will help keep the children off the streets as they will be engaging in book reading.

“We want the children to know that one of the advantages reading is that it engages various parts of your brain, when these children read they exercise their comprehension abilities and their analytical abilities.

This library will help them recall information.

It is very important for our children to read because it expands their vocabulary, helps build independence and self-confidence, and also keeps them off the streets. Let us encourage our children to read,” Ms Gwebu said with much enthusiast.

The event was under the theme we believe that it takes one word to change the lives of many #Ngiyafisa
The initiative was also sponsored by Eskom and Bethal SAPS who also donated clothes and gift packs to the children.
