1st Pinelands Cub Pack brought the joy of reading to seven Early Childhood Development centres in the Western Cape Townships with about 300 children by the creation of book nooks.
Led by Joan Lugt, Akela of 1st Pinelands Cub Pack and Russel Brown, Director of TEKI00 Design and Technology for Kids, they designed and built seven bookcases. TEKIOO is a non‐profit organisation that teaches woodwork, design and technology skills.
In partnership with Mhani Gingi Social Entrepreneurial Network teachers received training and other forms of support to develop ECD facilities
Another partner was Biblionef SA, who supplies relevant reading material to schools that do not have books to promote a culture of reading.
Joan said: “We wanted to do a project in which the Cubs could be involved in order for them to learn to care for people in need”. The Cubs who gave their time to assist with building the bookcases acquired woodwork skills in the process.
1st Pinelands Cub Pack was raising the funds for the books and was getting the books covered in durable plastic.
A Biblionef staff member facilitated a workshop in storytelling and 30 colourful story books in isiXhosa and English were donated by Biblionef SA to each of the seven ECD facilities.
This gave the children at the schools access to reading material and to regular reading activities while also enabling the schools to begin their own book collections for libraries.
