Literacy4life – Mosethla Primary School Edition

New Mosetlha Primary School Literacy Hub

Adv. Marukgwane Moremogolo – The Reading Runner

Empowering the youth at Mosetlha Primary
one book at a time

Ending Mandela month with a bang 

On the 6th of August 2021, Literacy4Life Foundation launched a
Literacy Hub at Mosetlha Primary School in Makapanstad, North
West Province, as part of our strategic goal of empowering
communities one book at a time.

The launch was in commemoration of Nelson Mandela
International Day and Literacy4Life patron and founder
Advocate Marukgwane Moremogolo’s legacy of promoting
literacy in previously disadvantaged communities.

Moremogolo, loudly and boldly believed in literacy, so much so
that he became known as the “Reading Runner”. Being the
dedicated athlete he was, who was also passionate about books,
he reached out to his wide network of associates and friends
from different walks of life to donate books for every kilometre
that he ran

Since then, the #kilometer4books has garnered attention and
enthusiasm from various corporations and individuals who want
to provide children with an opportunity for a bright future.

Bringing technology closer to
deserved communities.

Mosetlha Primary School children were
challenged to created artwork of Nelson
Mandela and Canvas Academy volunteered to
digitize the artwork. Involving our children in our
mission enables them to appreciate the work we

It encourages them to take advantage of the
opportunities we bring to them. It empowers
them to envision an even brighter future than
what we could ever imagine.

Unwavering Support

Books do not only have the potential to expose children to a world of possibilities, they have the power to instill life skills such as comprehension, critical thinking and literacy. With one book at a time, one library at a time, our mission will be fulfilled.

Our auspicious launch was graced by CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Sello Hatang and unveiled by Khosi Nchaupe III of Makapanstad.

Memory fades not

Beyond the book of condolences

 For Nelson lived

He danced

Fought with gloves

So not to be bewitched

Memory fates not

A giant tree fell

Heard in the heavens and on earth

Died not though

For Nelson live

Therefore, I am.

  1. Good day

    My name is Lerato Lekalakala. I am an avid reader and a mother of 2 who loves books. I am currently unemployed. So during covid times I have dedicated myself to open kids book club in my area. Being inspired by my little with the passion on books she had. Then I thought how about we share to other kids as well. We are in need of book donations. I voluntarily would lend books from community library for them. Been asking for donations from friends but so far just few to cover all the kids. I follow you on the media platforms and love what you have invested. I wish I can be part of your family as well and give a helping hand.
    Your response will be highly appreciated.

    Warmest Regards
    Lerato Lekalakala
