Van needed for Mitchells Plain
READ to RISE works with 45 primary schools in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town, South Africa, to get children excited about reading. We believe that children who love read will excel at school and go on to become constructive members of society. It all starts with reading. We require a van to transport books and staff for our class programmes. We visit about 700 classes, do 130 school visits per year and give out almost 30,000 new story books to learners.
A van will help our 4 staff get to the schools to conduct the class programmes. We could also transport the books which we give to children. We give out on average 300 books per weekday. We often get volunteers who join us at schools to read - a van would be great so that we could transport our volunteers. We also have book covering sessions, a van would help us to transport the books and plastic. Inspired children lead to inspired adults, who will lead good lives and give back to the community.

We will add the sponsor names/logos on the van.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
