Children receive Canon’s Room to Read books

Canon, world leader in imaging solutions, has partnered with education charity Room to Read to create and deliver 3 300 books to 176 schools across South Africa – promoting reading and learning as part of an overall drive to boost literacy levels and education.
Canon began its work with Room to Read in a bid to eliminate waste from print samples produced at trade shows, by using its integrated workflow software and printers to create books instead. Canon’s ongoing work with Room to Read is a prime example of Canon’s focus on sustainability and its dedication to its company philosophy of Kyosei, which means living and working together for the common good.
Stuart Poore, Director of Sustainability at Canon Europe said, “We believe that programmes such as Room to Read have the power to make a positive impact on an individual’s life and we are proud to be involved.”
Heather Simpson, Room to Read’s Chief Program Officer states: “Canon’s in-kind investments in our Literacy Program is an inspired response to the lack of quality reading materials available for children in so many communities around the world. By partnering with Room to Read, Canon is impacting thousands of deserving children in South Africa, instilling in them a love and habit of reading.”
