THE recycling project initiated by the Tongaat Central Library brings food to the table for those in need.

Vigie Padayachee from the Tongaat library said that the intention of the initiative, that is part of the library’s outreach programmes, aims to raise funds through the recycling project and donate to the community.

The latest beneficiary in the project is Savy Naidoo (49) from Belvedere in Tongaat.

The enthusiastic Naidoo thanked the Tongaat library for initiating projects that assist needy families in Tongaat.

Padayachee said: “Through the recycling project we have managed to feed families and those coming from previously disadvantaged communities.

“We therefore encourage the members of the community to donate old books, old newspapers, school materials and magazines to assist us in making our initiative a success. We appeal to the members to donate because the money generated through the programme goes to the poor families.”

She added that after conducting a survey in Tongaat and surrounding areas she deemed it proper to have a project that would help poor people in the area.

“Our intention is to lend a helping hand to our community at large and identify families that are struggling financially. But the success of the project relies on the donations that we receive. The library cannot do it alone and we therefore need the support from the members of the community.”
