REWA (Raising Education within Africa) was established in 2010 as a consultancy delivering professional services that raise the standard and quality of education so that children are well equipped to meet the challenges of education and life. Our focus is Early Childhood Development, Mindful Play and Literacy. We offer educational consultancy, conduct needs assessments, develop curriculum and training material for schools & organisations as well as provide training and workshops for parents and teachers on Play, Nurturing Care and Language & Literacy. At the REWA Education Centre, we are home to the REWA Community Library, Little Einsteins – a preschool focused on play, not profit and Learn To Play – Ithute Go Tshameka.
A not-for-profit library designed to foster literacy and a love of books in children. With over 4000 books available, the most important aspect of literacy development is access to beautiful books. The REWA Community Library opened in July 2018 to allow members of the public to read, share and love books as much as we do. Anyone is welcome to visit the library which is open Monday to Friday from 2pm-4pm and Saturday from 8am-1pm.
Membership and Access Details
Annual membership to the library is P600. All profits will go towards reinvesting into more books. You can take two books out at a time; then you return them within a two-week period. If you return them early you get to take another two books then. We hold monthly story time and events for young children and families, which are free for members or P25 for non-members. Members of the public are invited to sponsor underprivileged children so those children get free access to the library as we want to promote reading across all backgrounds.
Our Book Clubs take place in the form of Literature Circles, where every week the learners are given a specific role and responsibility (e.g. to illustrate a certain scene, to look up the meaning of particular words, to research the context of the book) thereby building comprehension, reading skills and contextual knowledge.
