Join in on World Read Aloud Day on 1 February
Nal’ibali is embarking on one of the biggest literacy drives in South Africa.
Join Nal’ibali, the national reading-for-enjoyment campaign, as they celebrate World Read Aloud Day on Thursday 01 February. Nal’ibali is inviting caregivers, schools and communities to join them in reading a single story to children across South Africa on World Read Aloud Day. Last year the campaign read aloud to over 700 000 children and this year it hopes to reach 1 000 000 children!

Nal’ibali’s World Read Aloud Day reaches thousands of children and adults every year in its bid to raise awareness of the importance of reading aloud in children’s literacy development and school success.
Each year Nal’ibali commissions a brand-new story for the day and translates it into all 11 official languages, asking caregivers, schools, and communities to join them in reading it aloud to children in their home languages on the same day.
Last year the campaign read aloud to almost 720 000 children. And, in 2018, it hopes to reach 1 000 000 children! To download the special story and make your pledge to read aloud with the nation on Thursday 01 February, visit www.nalibali.org.
