On 27 May, children’s centres across the Helderberg, Grabouw and the Cape’s Winelands will begin receiving free children’s books. The give-away project, funded by home-fittings company Decorland, is a partnership of Book Dash, Masikhule, and several organisations working with underprivileged children. It will provide 5000 books in Xhosa, Afrikaans and English, developed by some of Cape Town’s leading creatives, to Early Childhood Development centres and primary schools. Read more

Book Dash at The Book Lounge, 11 December 2014

We’ve already raised R50 000 – yay! That means we can print and give away 2000 books to kids in need. But with your help we can do more!

Please join us for the last push on the Thundafund campaign, which closes on 18 December.
