The books collected by Sony will be sent to South Africa where they will be transported in mobile libraries which visit local schools, providing students and teachers an opportunity to borrow the books. With more than 60 mobile libraries in operation across all nine provinces in South Africa, the books currently reach out to approximately 800 schools.

This year’s project in Singapore will be held from 26 October – 10 November 2019. Members of the public are invited to donate English-language children’s books at the Sony Store, NEX (#03-21, 23 Serangoon Central) between 11am and 9pm daily during the period:

  • Good condition books that are suitable for children/youths 15 years old and below
  • Please avoid donating encyclopedias, reference books, assessment books, text books or magazines

The SAMLP is one of the CSR programs supported by Sony, which has touched the lives of thousands of young African children, contributing to the improvement of literacy rates in the country. Over the last decade, Singapore continues to be the largest contributor among the participating countries, with over 114,000 books donated to-date.
