A new book club was opened recently in the Koue Bokkeveld. Students had the chance to page through brand new Afrikaans books sponsored by LAPA Uitgewers. As is the case on all the other farms where we teach martial arts, our female farm workers were very excited to take romance novels home with them. New Afrikaans books are expensive and hard to come by our general farm workers. In some cases where there is a library on the farm, the children and grown-ups had read all the books in it! We are very proud of our Reading for Life programme, started by us 4 years ago.
