Only 7% of schools in South Africa have libraries. That means 85% of South Africans do not have access to a nearby library.


Vodacom introduces the Tries for Books campaign.


During the 2016 Vodacom Super Rugby season, Vodacom will donate R7000 for every try scored by a South African team, towards setting up e-libraries and donating books to schools in communities that need it most.


The on field action will translate into empowering young minds around the country giving teams an extra reason to get the ball over the chalk line.


Fans will be able to get involved by donating books at various stadiums around the country. These books will be distributed to underprivileged schools.


Books have the Power to change the world.
