Under the education banner, M-Net launched the M-Net Naledi Children’s Literacy Project in 2010 with workshops only in English.
In 2011, the project expanded to 1000 children to 4 provinces namely Free State, Gauteng, Western Cape, Kwa-Zulu Natal and 3 additional languages (Zulu, Sotho, and Xhosa).
In 2013 M-Net are going bigger with their M-Net Naledi project. They aim to reach over 2500 young learners. The 12-week reading campaign focuses on the development of phonic skills, teaching children to listen to the sounds of words, and associating these with letters. As part of the M-Net Naledi project, M-Net have embarked on revamping libraries in under-resourced schools and youth community centres and we urge you to donate a book to this initiative.
In addition, M-Net has also included young learners with special learning needs as they will be extending the programme to schools for children with disabilities in all regions. For these learners not only are M-Net leaving them with a certificate of participation at the graduation ceremony, but we also hope to leave them with a new found love for reading and open them up to a new world of discovery.
Drop off points for Primary School Books are at all The Golfers Club outlets nationwide and at all events under the M-Net Cares Drive for the Cause in association with Liberty Medical Scheme Campaign
