Today marked international Read Aloud Day. Nal'ibali teams, in partnership with Sikhula Sonke Early Childhood team, conducted a huge campaign of reading aloud in various settings around Khayelitsha. Locations ranged from ECD sites, Ithusong municipal activity centres, public spaces and home outreach programmes.
We believe that this should be a daily activity to encourage the importance of reading at a very early age. Children were captivated by this activity, and the act of listening to stories read aloud contributes hugely to children's literacy development.
Thank you Nal'ibali and SISO teams!
