Delivering Better Lives
UTi charitable foundation helps increase literacy
Delivering Better Lives recently completed two projects on different continents with the same goal of increasing literacy opportunities in disadvantaged communities.
Both projects delivered donated books provided by the Worldwide Book Drive, with DBL arranging all shipping and distribution within the communities.
The first book shipment was delivered to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and distributed to about two dozen schools and orphanages in and around the city. The facilities serve a combined 35,000 people who will now have better access to books as a result.
The second project saw books delivered to Nyaure, Zimbabwe, a community DBL has supported since building a health clinic there in 2012. These books were then distributed throughout the region to those in need. Community members gathered for the delivery and were very thankful for the investment in their future.
