Penreach Books In Homes
Books in Homes was established in 2000.
It grew from humble beginning when retired teacher, Val Morris, after many years of working in rural areas, recognised the need to produce affordable and culturally relevant books and teaching material for schools and children who have little or no access to such resources.
Penreach Books in Homes storybooks and charts are for classroom use, from pre-school to senior primary level and beyond, and for children to take home – often the first book a child will own.
More than half a million books have been placed in thousands of schools and communities throughout under resourced schools and homes in South Africa and further afield.
Books from Penreach Books in Homes are found in 360 Reading Camps across Mpumalanga reaching 14 000 children on a weekly basis.
It is my wish that the voice of the storyteller will never die in Africa, that all children in the
world may experience the wonder of books and that they will never lose the capacity to
enlarge their earthly dwelling place with the magic of stories
– Nelson Mandela
