The educational materials were shipped free for Together with Africa and Asia Association (TAAA) and comprised donated English books, math sets and soccer balls.
The materials were shipped in a 20-foot container on 25 April from Yokohama to Durban in South Africa onboard the vessel Allegoria.
The materials have since been delivered to schools in remote areas of South Africa by TAAA staff. According to the TAAA rural schools in South Africa are constantly in short supply of educational materials and they have been severally affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It is hoped that the arrival of these educational materials will drive engagement with the children and further support their studies. ONE will continue to engage in social contribution activities, utilizing its global network to support worthy causes,” ONE said.
