The African Children's Stories Program makes books relevant – and so makes reading more interesting – to African children by publishing and distributing African children's stories from African countries.
Parents, caregivers and children have been asked to make a pledge to build a bond of reading. A love of reading and stories in childhood will grow into a love of reading in adulthood and a literate population.
Youngsters flying on SAA aeroplanes over the festive season have an extra treat: the Nal'ibali Story Power magazine will be available in-flight, along with audio books for their entertainment. It is all part of the reading for enjoyment campaign.
Storytellers across the land were invited to tell stories for Nal'ibali's Story Bosso – the best storyteller in the land. Out of thousands of entries, there are 15 finalists. Their audio stories are available for download from Nal'ibali, as the celebrity judges decide on the winner.
