Building the future, one book at a time

Children need books to open their minds to new worlds.

Books are an important aspect of a child’s education.

To this end author Carlyle Labuschagne, who works in Germiston, is holding a book drive for Biz Kids SA.

The mentorship programme is aimed at underprivileged children who want to uplift their communities by becoming young entrepreneurs.

Carlyle needs the community’s help and needs donations of all types of educational, business, self-help or inspirational books.

Donations for the drive can be dropped off at the GCN’s offices, situated at 25 Main Road, Fishers’ Hill.
