The overall goal of Miracle Drive is to offer assistance and welfare to the greater South African community, and therefore, in continuing with this vision statement, we are dedicated to improving the literacy and education levels in impoverished communities throughout Johannesburg, by developing and installing container libraries in areas where they are most needed.
Each container is equipped with shelving, books (including books in the native language of each community), tables and chairs, and our Grow Your Life series will be an integral element in these libraries.
Each library/classroom will employ a teacher/librarian on a part time basis in order to facilitate the library, and over time, be responsible for teaching the children how to read themselves, thereby developing the literacy and education levels which as you know are vital in sustaining and growing any community and country.
We have already opened 10 libraries in the following places:
- Orange Farm
- Freedom Park
- Eldorado Park
Please do not hesitate to contact me directly should you require any further information in this regard.
