"Access to literacy is a basic human right"
As the daughter of a single mother who was an educator and a storyteller, I have grown up looking at the world through the wonderful lens of literacy. I have been in the library and information science profession for over 21 years and ‘Project 21’ emerged as a result of my experiences on the job throughout this period. The overall aim of ‘Project 21’ is to try and eradicate illiteracy in my home province of the Eastern Cape, and then throughout South Africa. I hope to uplift the existing poor reading standards and encourage a love of reading in both adults and children.
