Energizer commissioned young, aspiring artists to design a sculpture using Energizer batteries. The designs were rendered in 3D artworks which you could see – and judge – by visiting www.facebook.com/energizersouthafrica
. The funds raised through the sculpture initiative were utilised to provide much needed portable Energizer Libraries to one of the READ Educational Trust’s literacy projects at the Motheo Foundation Primary School in Lawley.
With great excitement, on Friday, May 18, the two portable Energizer Libraries were handed over during school assembly and to the delight of the learners, Mr Energizer himself entertained and interacted with the kids. Housed in a specially-made cabinet, each portable Energizer Library contains a range of books chosen to meet the school’s specific needs, ranging from books for the Foundation Phase to encyclopaedias and dictionaries for the Intermediate Phase. Compact enough to stay in a classroom, their portability makes them flexible enough to be moved when required.
“Since reading is one of the prime focuses of READ’s commitment to education,” said Lizellle Langford, READ Educational Trust PR and fund raising manager, “we are most grateful to Energizer for their ‘Positivenergy’. These libraries will certainly help Motheo’s learners become responsible adults who can make a positive impact on South Africa’s future.”
“It was so rewarding to see the enthusiasm and excitement the mobile Energizer Libraries generated,” Rashmi Vadivelu, Energizer’s brand manager commented with obvious pleasure, “and Energizer is proud to contribute Positivenergy to the children’s education.”
