Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) announced plans to assist the non-profit organization South Africa Primary Education Support Initiative with the ocean transport of mobile library vehicles to the republic of South Africa. Such assistance was provided in 2009 and 2010, so the current project is the third for MOL.
The shipping company previously transported 24 vehicles, and in this phase, it will transport eight vehicles. Four of them are being transported by MOL’s cutting-edge hybridcar carrier, the Emerrald Ace.
The mobile libraries that played an important role in local communities in Japan will soon gain new lives in visting elementary and junior high schools in South Africa and contributing to the education of both students and teachers
