Hytec sponsors container library for Mandela Libraries Project
4th Quarter 2018, News & events


Hytec has partnered with the Mandela Libraries Project for the fifth time, to supply a fully-stocked and containerised library for the Papong Primary School in the Limpopo Province. Hytec’s R290 000 donation covered a 12x3 metre converted, insulated container with shelving, doors, windows and security. Hytec stocked the library with 2500 books, 200 of which are early readers in the local languages of the province, as well as chairs, floor mats and posters.

The ribbon-cutting was a strong community affair with the headmaster of Papong Primary School, the school’s governing body, and principals from four other local schools attending.

Hytec general manager, Mike Harrison said: “Education is a key pillar for success in Africa and Hytec is extremely proud to sponsor this library. By investing in local communities, and specifically children, we create a better future and broaden the horizons of young minds far beyond the local community.” He added that this container library means that local children are no longer only exposed to what they see locally. Now it can expand to what they read globally. It allows them to see the world in a more encouraging way.

The library brings much needed hope, educational support and social upliftment to this rural school of 520 primary school children. The library handover ceremony was well attended by the local community, as well as all the surrounding schools. Headmaster, Mr Maroga, committed to allowing all other schools access to the library’s resources.
