Gugulethu comes alive tonight!!

Yesterday for Community Buzz Thursday I showcased the Anti Xenophobia cultural event. The event is organised by the Food and Allied workers union(, Gugulethu arts hub and PASSOP(

There'll be hip hop, poetry, drama, jazz, marimbas and so much more and what's more it FREE/GRATIS/MAHALA-if I knew how to say it in other languages I would've.

The event takes place at the Vuyisile Mini Centre in NY1 6pm - 10pm.
Then Equal Education (EE) launches there third school library at Masiyile High School in Khayelitsha.

The Masiyile High School library collection is made up of over 3300 fiction, non-fiction and reference books (3 books per learner) which cater for every level and interest. Many of the books have been chosen by the learners themselves, thanks to financial donations from a number of generous donors.

Currently, only 8% of public schools in South Africa have functioning school libraries, most of which are in former model-C schools. Widely acclaimed research has demonstrated that the provision of functioning school libraries is significantly linked to improved learner performance. The findings of that research are included in EE’s own research report titled We Can’t Afford Not To (attached). This research partly forms the basis for Equal Education’s current Campaign for School Libraries (1School, 1Library, 1Librarian).
