Safika is helping to provide books to poor African children throughout the continent by supporting Australian books for Children of Africa (ABCA)

So far, ABCA has distributed over 160 000 books to more than 100 schools and institutions in Africa.  The Nkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa was the 100th recipient of ABCA books.

Now with help from Safika, students from the Leibler Yavneh College in Melbourne have collected another 1500 books that will be sent to needy children in Africa.

Moss Ngoasheng, Safika’s chief executive, said that since its inception Safika has supported projects that help educate the poor and disadvantaged. “We are pleased to help this worthy project and will continue the Safika tradition of working to assist the educational development of our continent’s children.”

Ari Israel, Jude Jankelovich, Sam Pamensky, Toby Leiblich, Joshua Kretzmar and Daniel Ber from Melbourne’s Leibler Yavneh College were among the students who volunteered to collect and parcel books for needy children in Africa.
