Supporting literacy

June 2012 News

Management and staff at Accsys have rallied together and donated magazines, children’s and adult books in support of the company’s literacy programme, launched at the beginning of the year.

The company initially wanted to partner with the Greater Good SA initiative called Do-it-Day. Technology stepped in and this project evolved into a Website portal where charities and business are able to post requests and services or goods on offer.

Accsys management has focused on skills development and is involved in projects to deliver adult education. In line with this, the donation of a range of books and other literary material to several beneficiaries was an attractive initiative and seen as part of a literacy programme that the company is keen to roll out as a long-term project.

The LEAP Science and Maths School was identified for magazines, the Bright Kid Foundation received children’s books and a number of books were given to the Pretoria Council for the Care of the Aged.

The intention was to help learners at the School with resources for projects, whilst children at the Bright Kid Foundation now have books to help with basic literacy. Residents at the Council will also benefit from replenished stock of reading material. Accsys has a plan to broaden the campaign and target charities that are located within key regions throughout the company’s branch network.

“Literacy is the first building block for a successful economy, it empowers people to economic independence through their ability to manage their own affairs,” says Teryl Schroenn, CEO at Accsys.
