Cape Town – Reading out aloud may be an integral building block in learning and has the potential to turn around South Africa’s literacy crisis.
This is why NGO Nal’ibali has encouraged South Africans to participate in its World Read Aloud Day (Wrad) initiative, which is celebrated tomorrow.
As the biggest literacy drive in the country, Wrad seeks to draw attention to the importance of reading aloud to children in their mother tongue.
Every year, thousands of South Africans join in the celebration.
Nal’ibali is asking those who are already readers to not only read the story commissioned for Wrad 2019 with their children, but to reach out to their networks and encourage others to do the same and be part of South Africa’s literacy solution.
