A Read-Aloud event hosted by Sikhula Sonke and Nal' ibali saw at least 402 children attending and enjoying storytelling. It is very exciting to see outreach programs, local preschools and community children come together in a variety of locations: the Funda Udlale Toy Library, Main hall Library, mini hall, children's hall, and seminar room.
The title of the main story was "Esona Sandi Siqaqambileyo Ehlabathini" - translated as The Best Sound in the World. Lots of other stories were told and dramatised and complemented the main story.
Our Emthonjeni Outreach programme has won the best out-of-center based programme in the Western Cape, with Funda Udlale as the 1st runner up winner. Congratulations to both Emthonjeni and Library teams! They have been a talk of the town at the provincial awards. We thank God for all of this.
