A new chapter in young lives

The gift of a book is the gift of love to every one of our scholarship students.
They are so eager to learn and to soak up every ounce of knowledge they can.
Now they have exercise books, text books and pencils of their very own.
And there are another 9000 books that they can choose from to borrow from our library.
This is treasure indeed to these young people.
Every page they turn will open a new window on the world for them, adding a new dimension to their lives.
A book can transport them to another world, another time, put them into another skin, firing imagination and ambition in the process.
 These young people cannot believe how their lives are being transformed.
A fortnight ago a book of any kind was beyond their grasp.
Now, each one has started a new and exciting chapter of their lives.
