Cornet Mamabolo just melted the hearts of many South Africans with his big heart, the Skeem Saam actor recently achieved his dream of building a library in his village in Limpopo.
According to Sunday World, the actor said that the library would be open this week and that it took 3 years to build, he also mentioned that they need more books for the library.
"We needed books that will speak to the youth and will be fascinating for the actual community, because we are dealing with a community that is not used to reading, or used to going to the library." he said to the paper.
He then went on to say that he partnered with the University of Limpopo, the National Library to find books that would be fitting for the library. Take a look at the pictures below.
Years down the line this pallet shelves will be warn out... some books will be without middle pages & covers. There will be New technology & some of our machines will be stored in our archives. The library walls will be cracked. However, You need to be assured though that GaMolepo will be a new community. We would have produced Entrepreneurs... successful youth in powerful institutions & positions, nationally and globally. I put it to you now, CMF COMMUNITY LIBRARY is & will for the longest time be a true reflection of Youth’s revolutionary initiative. It’s a true reflection of a community in solidarity. It’s a symbol of others first before “I” One day it will make sense to you. This part of me is called PRAYER.
Sometimes in life you just need to start. We’ll cross the bridge when we get there. I’ve learned I’m no special. Nor smart. That it’s the environment one was groomed in to be afforded the opportunities today. The library marks the beginning of a new tomorrow for our youth in the village. The festivals we host with minimal resources are meant to equip the less privileged. Hard as it is. We’re driven by the dreams of our peers and children. It’s a dream that might not be clear to many. But one day it will make sense. 078 5075 503 084 8694 896 #cornetmfoundation #redfest #cmfcommunitylibrary
congratulations to him & his team.
