Mike Glover and Elise Fish of Touch Africa monitored the project for Avbob, and Frik Rademan, the CEO of Avbob, made the main acceptance speech.

 

The Edutainer® was donated to Shukumane Primary School and received by the Headmaster Mr Sanguani.

 

The library will take up to 7000 books and was very enthusiastically received by the teachers and pupils of Shukumane Primary School.

 

There are over 16,000 public schools without libraries, and this Booktainer® has provided a much needed superb library to Shukumane Primary School.
