- Cornet launched a community programme to encourage reading and education.
- He built a library to give underprivileged kids a space to read and study, but government has offered him no assistance.
- The actor has reached out to the people of Mzansi for assistance in keeping the library alive.
Skeem Saam actor Cornet Mamabolo launched his community library several months ago, but he is battling to keep it alive with little to no support from government.
The library aims to help underprivileged youth, but Cornet is struggling to get support from government.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the first rollout of his initiative which was done in his home village of Maripathekong, in GaMolepo, Limpopo. The foundation is called the Cornet Mamabolo Foundation and it aims to promote education and reading.
Cornet took to social media to give us all an update on the library, but it was not all rainbows and butterflies. The lack of support from local government is making it extremely difficult.
The foundation is a non-profit organisation, which means that it runs soley off of donations. The library cannot function without funds, and as the government is iving no assistance, Conet has reached out to the people of Mzansi.
The actor is asking the people og Mzansi to support in any way that they can. He wants to show the volunteers some appreciation by using donations to give them ‘groceries, school uniforms, money, internet access data or airtime’.
It is sad to think that the government is hesitant to help initiatives that are as important as this one.
