South African Airways (SAA) has partnered with Nal’ibali reading-for-enjoyment campaign to produce a second edition of their Story Power magazine. Soweto-based Nal’ibali reading club, Mighty Stars, children were invited to place the first copies of the magazine in the seat pockets of an SAA aircraft at a launch event held at SAA Technical in Johannesburg.

Musa Zwane, Lusanda Jiya, GM Shareholder and Stakeholder Relations said: “The 2014 Nal’ibali edition proved so popular among children and their caregivers that the partners will once again be offering young travellers a brand new story written by a local author, fun literacy activities and ideas for parents to help keep their children reading over the holiday period. In addition, little listeners will also be able to enjoy Nal’ibali audio stories as part of SAA’s in-flight entertainment schedule on regional flights.”

To ensure their literacy journeys continue long after they have landed, children and caregivers can access even more literacy tips and stories in their home languages by visiting the Nal’ibali web- and mobisites ( and throughout the year.
