Executive Director – Book Dash – South Africa
« I am motivated by social change, equality and the arts. Education has always been an avenue for change for me, internally and globally. I believe whole heartedly that it’s possible to run a successful business and be good for the world and I’m glad to see more people operating in this way. I’ve been working to publish and get beautiful, local, free books to very young children for 6 years now, in the knowledge that early interventions are critical to lifelong success. »
Book Dash is a social impact, not-for-profit publisher of beautiful new, African storybooks that anyone can read, download, translate and print. We gather creatives to volunteer to produce these open-licensed books in just 12 hours, following the Book Dash methodology. Then, we source funds to translate and print these books ourselves and get them to children for free.
