Co-operative Schools join the Book Campaign

One of the schools in KwaZulu Natal.

my website Three Co-operative schools  are teaming up to send 50,000 books to their linked schools in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The three schools, Aire Valley School (near Bradford) Campstown Technology College (near Doncaster) and South Axholme School (Epworth) are going to encourage the public to donate books for the campaign. The three schools in South Africa Makhasa High School, Kwa Giba High School and Malabela High School, all in KwaZulu Natal, will use the books to set up school libraries. Isobel McVicar, Community H.E.A.R.T. Director said, ” This is a wonderful way of students cementing their links. Though school buildings have vastly improved since the end apartheid, many schools have no school library and students have little or no access to books. A school library is a practical tangible way of changing the outcomes for young people in South Africa.

Comrade Goldberg, the DVD

Comrade Goldberg - Terrorist or Freedom Fighter

Get the facts We are pleased that a documentary about Denis Goldberg, our founding Director, has been published. Though Nelson Mandela’s long struggle against the racist apartheid regime is legendary, the struggle of his fellow comrades is less well known. The documentary is a moving account of Denis’s part in the struggle and that of his fellow comrades, some of whom were murdered. Copies of “Comrade Goldberg – Terrorist or Freedom Fighter” are available from Community H.E.A.R.T. FOR £10 + post and packaging. All proceeds will help fund Community H.E.A.R.T. projects.

LAMDA supports the Book Campaign

The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) donated 2,800 new books from their stock for our Book and 10 Pence campaign. Nat Perez, Chair of Community H.E.A.R.T. said, “This is a wonderful gift for the children of South Africa. We only send books that are in good condition but getting new books is a great bonus. We would like to thank LAMDA for thinking about our project.”
