Reading statistics report that only 14% of the South African population are active book readers, and a mere 5% of parents read to their children. Considering the concerning illiteracy rates in South Africa, Signature of Hope will be hosting their first book drive.
The goal is to donate 500 books to underprivileged children who do not have access to books or libraries in their communities. The book drive will run throughout the month of September, with collection points at Carrick Wealth offices nationally.
Signature of Hope is a recognized non-profit, public benefit organisation who aims to empower people, build communities and change lives. Since opening their doors in 2014, Signature of Hope has supported non-profits who are passionate about making a sustainable difference in the lives of vulnerable children living in underprivileged communities.
Show your support and donate your new or gently used books for tots, early readers and teens to this worthy cause.
