In an on going effort to boost literacy, Hyundai Automotive South Africa has handed over a new library and learning centre to the Windmill Park Primary School in Boksburg.


To date Hyundai have donated 11 libraries as part of their corporate social investment programme. In 2013 Hyundai South Africa donated the first library to the Southview High School in Lenasia in collaboration with Hyundai Motor Company of South Korea and the Imperial and Motus Community Trust.


Subsequently Hyundai has focussed on making an impact on the lives of learners in underprivileged communities, following the example set by the Korean model, where a relentless focus on education laid the foundation for the successes of the modern South Korea.


“We wish to encourage learning, reading, an interest in technology and education as a whole through its part of our corporate social investment programme", says Niall Lynch, CEO of Hyundai Automotive SA, who handed over the library to Oscar Lekoane, principal of the Windmill Park Primary School.


“We are proud of the part we can play to give children from this community a better education that will broaden their mind and vision. We need great, inquisitive learners who become successful and productive adults in our country,” said Lynch.


The libraries incorporate technology in the form of laptop computers to enhance and supplement the reading and learning experience. Librarians, who come from the community surrounding the school, are on hand to assist the learners and to see that the centres are well maintained.


School principal Lekoane added that the library and resource centre is an important source of learning for the pupils of the Windmill Park Primary School as it is necessary for learners to develop and improve their reading. The library also provides a space that is beautiful in which pupils can immerse themselves and learn from the wonderful world of books.
