South Africa, Cape Town – VUSA Rugby Academy will make reading more accessible for children with the launch of a new mobile tuk-tuk library in Langa.
Brendan Fogarty, the founder and director of the VUSA Academy, said these initiatives really made a difference for the children in the poverty-stricken communities in which VUSA often worked.
Meanwhile, the driver of the mobile library, Lungile Moferi, says the initiative was particularly important to him, as he struggled in his youth to communicate efficiently and thus made it a point to always read to his child with his wife, and now he has the pleasure of reading and sharing the experience with his grandchild.
Fogarty said that Lungile is a wonderful man, and as a father himself he’s brought that special element to our reading programme. His interaction with the children is proactive and is a massive part of what this is all about.
