We ❤️ this #feelgoodfriday story from Johannesburg, South Africa.
Muzi Nkosi runs a small container library for children in Cosmo City near Honeydew, Johannesburg. A pharmacist by profession, Nkosi has been running the library since April 2015 and has collected more than 5 000 books for children, which are kept in a red shipping container. "The experience has been fulfilling. It makes me happy that we are starting them young," Nkosi says with a beaming smile. "I was raised as an orphan and it was difficult for us to even afford a toy or a book. I love kids and the best way to overcome crime and poverty in life is to give them a proper education, and I think the library is the best thing that has happened in the community... I was amazed at the turnaround of the children reading our books. The country can be better if we give kids good education. We are trying to remove them from the streets... It feels great not seeing children in the streets, it feels good to make them fall in love with reading."
