ONE BOOK AT A TIME PROJECT
this Christmas, thanks to your help,
the 942 boys and girls in the Makgatho Primary School will receive
a very special gift
every child is special
The children from this school in South Africa come from very underprivileged backgrounds. Many are orphans, other live in children or granny led families, man hostels, informal settlements and refugee camps. The school makes an effort to give them two meals a day but they suffer from basic hygiene and health problems.
books with a future
We want to share a bit of the Christmas magic with these children and promote the reading habit to encourage them to keep studying to build a better future. We have chosen every book carefully, with each child in mind, from the timeless classics to the contemporary african titles. It is not only how much you read but also the quality of what you read that matters.
100% direct giving
All the funds raised will be used to buy the books. The NGO One at a time projects is run with the help of volunteers and doesn't have structure or administrative costs so that every donation goes directly to those that need it most. Many people are helping selflessly so that these little boys and girls can have a very special Christmas.
