22,000 books to schools in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia

Our first shipment of 2011 was sent with 22,000 books, plus science equipment, chairs, stationery and music stands.

Many of the books are destined for new school libraries that School Aid South Africa are opening in 2011.

Herne Hill School in London packed 19 boxes of school supplies for their linked school Khanya Primary in Cape Town, South Africa.

The science equipment will be travelling overland to schools in southern Zimbabwe, and one pallet will be transported to a primary school in Zambia.
