The 350 euros that I received from IBBY was about 4500 rand that I could use to buy books for young adult readers. It amounted to about 60 titles at different prizes. The learners came to my class after normal school hours and would sit down for an hour to read the books in class. We also devised a loan system whereby they could take the books home and return in due time. They were very excited and enthusiastic. The group that benefitted now was more senior learners about the age 16 years. I want to include younger learners of about 14 years.
Thank you again for your donation. My learners and I highly appreciate it.
Sincerely, Emmerentia van Wyk
