Philani knows the power books have to change society and wants to share the gift with as many underprivileged children as possible through his story. It is a story that has the power to motivate and inspire and Philani needs your help in purchasing copies of his book to give away to literacy charities or charities as you see fit.
Twenty four year old Philani Dladla is one of the most inspirational young South Africans you’re likely to meet. An avid reader with an insatiable desire for knowledge, Philani has used his love for books to overcome drug addiction and change his lot in life – while trying to do the same for others.
Dubbed ‘The Pavement Bookworm’, Philani’s story has gained international attention – which he hopes to channel into real support for his literacy project and Book Reader’s Club for underprivileged children in Johannesburg.(via http://www.pavementbookworm.co.za )
That is why as Book Club Society we collect books to donate to underprivileged people and organizations. You will never know whose life you are changing.
There is a saying that goes “What you do for yourself remains with you but what you do for the world remains”
