help2read celebrates International Book Giving Day

On 14 February, we celebrated International Book Giving Day, commemorating the joy of giving and the treasure of owning a book. This year, we commemorated International Book Giving Day by gifting each learner on our programme with a brand new book. The day perfectly coincided with Valentine’s Day, and what better way for us to show love than by gifting books!
