78% of children in Grade 3 can’t read CORRECTLY, 65% of Grade 5 pupils can’t add and subtract whole numbers.

Poor literacy levels remain a concern in South Africa and Huawei want to change this with the Today’s Readers, Tomorrow’s Leaders. Huawei is building a library in Hammanskraal.

947 have partnered up with Huawei to fill those shelves with books.

But we need your help to raise R400 000 to purchase academic books.

We hear from Huawei about the campaign and how we all can get involved and make a difference one book at a time.

How can you help us achieve our goal?

You can SMS “BOOKS” to 42246 to donate R30 right now. SMS’s are charged at R30 and free SMS’s do not apply

If you want to donate MORE than R30, THEN call us right now or SMS the amount you want to pledge to 32946.

You can follow the campaign on social media #Read2Lead.
