Thus far we have received a box that contained 25 books, from Elaine Reeves at Usborne Publishing Company in the United Kingdom. This generous donation enabled us to take the first step towards our vision of empowering children with knowledge. Eighteen of the books received were on 12/06/2012 donated to a kindergarten school in Tshabalala which had absolutely no children's books prior to our visit. Fifty one children attend this school, the donation will thus enable establishment of a library system in which books can be rotated between classes so that each child can borrow a book for up to a week and eventually get the chance to read all the books.
The growth of every individual is highly dependent on several factors, some of which are imparted by the environment and nature of certain individuals. To be able to understand the impact of human growth and understanding we should acknowledge that every individual is capable of achieving whatever they set their minds to.
Children are passive in their understanding and instinct remains a part of human nature that can never be distorted or made impure. Learning is an active process that should be highly accentuated in a multi-factorial setting. Children in our community are very innovative and possess such bottomless wisdom. They are capable of changing the little that they have into something that can give them a sense of knowing and learning without any limitations.
Tshabalala, like many poor communities in Zimbabwe, is plagued with inactivity, crime and educational deficits. We believe in the perception that everything great begins from within, the smallest of ideas, smallest of things, smallest of activities, smallest of concepts, and the implementation of all these is what we intend to achieve.
