Youth Day: Nyanga Learners Receive Meals and Books

GIVING BACK: Coronation Chief Financial Officer and CSI Committee Chairperson Mary-Anne Musekiwa and her colleagues brought joy to the minds and bellies of the young learners of Mkhanyiseli Primary in Nyanga ahead of Youth Day. In partnership with the food aid organisation Ladles of Love a meal was served to all 1050 learners and alongside NPO Living Through Learning they read inspiring stories to the children at the school’s Reading Adventure Room. This colourful room is sponsored by Coronation and is a special space to encourage a love of reading, as part of the company’s long-term commitment to boost vital foundation phase literacy in under-resourced schools around the country. This Youth Month, literacy is a key issue facing South Africa’s young people and more literacy initiatives are needed to address the country’s poor literacy rates.
