The community of Zoar is a very poor Afrikaans rural community situated approximately eighty kilometres from Oudtshoorn in a village.
The community struggles against poverty, illiteracy and unemployment as the majority of them are seasonal workers on the surrounding fruit farms.
The people have very limited resources to expand their world. And because of the limited resources and lack of money they are caught up in an awful social reality, where you get alcohol abuse, teenage pregnancies and high levels of crime.
READ SA forms part of a bigger community, and therefore it is our social responsibility to equip these people with certain skills and knowlegde useful for the challenges of society.
I firmly believe that having access to the wonderful world of books will contribute to their development and the transformation in thought.
I therefore ask you humbly to help these people by giving them books to read. Having mention all these things, I have to inform you that there is a small library, but with very limited books.
Will you please help us , so that we can start by exposing people to a world of books, especially non-fiction,spiritual,refe
