Inspiring the literary tradition

Jade Jacobsohn, Nalibali managing director, pictured, said: Far too few children in South Africa have the opportunity to engage with books and stories in a way that is enjoyable and exciting. As a result, there is often a lack of motivation for children to engage in reading, resulting in direct and very negative implications for future learning success.

On International Children’s Day, Wednesday June 1, at the District Six Museum’s Homecoming Centre, the Nal’ibali reading-for-enjoyment campaign launched its “FUNda Leader” campaign, which aims to inspire adults across the country to change the lives of children by sharing books and stories with them.
