Press Release Nal’ibali World Read Aloud Day

JOIN NAL’IBALI IN SHARING A SINGLE STORY WITH 1 MILLION CHILDREN!

 

Nal’ibali’s World Read Aloud Day celebration is fast becoming one of the biggest literacy drives in South Africa; reaching thousands of children and adults every year in its bid to raise awareness of the importance of reading aloud in children’s literacy development and school success.  Each year Nal’ibali commissions a brand-new story for the day and translates it into all 11 official languages; asking caregivers, communities, and fellow NGOs to join them in reading it aloud to children in their home languages. Last year the campaign read aloud to almost 720 000 children. And, this year, Blind SA are coming on board to share the story with blind and partially sighted children through the production of a braille story card which we’ll be sharing with schools in our network. Nal’ibali hopes to reach 1 000 000 children in 2018 and we are excited to be a part of this special reading event!
