BOOK DASH’S MILESTONE TWO MILLION BOOKS
Foord has sponsored the efforts of Book Dash, a local NGO that works to promote literacy and the love of books to all South African children, for three years now. The Book Dash vision is for every child to own a hundred books by the age of five. A massive endeavour, but a feat they are well on their way to achieving—one book at a time.
In January 2022, Book Dash reached the massive milestone of over two million picture books printed. These will be distributed through literacy and early childhood development partners to children across South Africa, often being the first books they will own. All Book Dash books are created in 12-hour sprints throughout the year by volunteer writers, illustrators, designers, editors and translators from across the continent.
We are immensely proud of their achievement. And grateful for their guidance and inspiration for Foord’s own TEACH YOUR CHILD TO INVEST financial literacy initiative.
