MiWay's MiHeart Project goes a step further

MiWay staff doing their bit to revamp a librarySince the launch of the MiHeart Project earlier this year, our MiHeart Volunteers have been hard at work making a difference one school at a time. This month the volunteers went a step further to revamp Maphutha Secondary school’s library in Tembisa.

After noticing that the school’s library didn’t have enough books and was in desperate need of some TLC, the volunteers stepped in and implemented a book drive and collected over 2000 books. All of which were donated by MiWay’s staff and community members.

The volunteers eagerly rolled up their sleeves and spent their Saturday renovating the library. With a lick of paint, a thorough clean as well as a good deal of cataloguing and organising books – they were able to transform the space into a haven for learning.

The end result, is a fully equipped library that is pleasant, inviting and a productive space for Maphutha’s learners and teachers to enjoy.

Maphutha Secondary School Principal, Mrs K.C Nthlane thanked MiWay for their time, commitment and generosity. She went on to say: “We hope that the school will benefit and grow academically as we reap the rewards of better education. The library and the computer lab will go a long way in changing lives of the entire community.”

The MiHeart volunteers look forward to the next phase of the project where they will engage with the schools and offer basic computer literacy lessons.
