Nal’ibali’ plans to set reading record

World Read Aloud Day (WRAD) is celebrated on Friday 1 February.

South Africans are enjoined to take part in the festivities by Nal’ibali.

Nal’ibali, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) which focuses on reading for enjoyment, is hoping to reach a staggering 1.5 m children on the day, about 500 000 more than last year’s target.

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, for their children, their language and their future.

Nal’ibali is asking those who are already readers to not only read the story commissioned for WRAD 2019 with their children on the day, but to reach out to their networks and encourage others to do the same and be part of South Africa’s literacy solution.­

The NGO says there is huge potential to turn the country’s “literacy crisis” around so that reading becomes a powerful tool to tackle inequality and poverty.

“While education may be the most powerful weapon, reading aloud and storytelling are integral building blocks in learning.”

Jade Jacobsohn, Nali’bali’s managing director, says: “Every year we commission a brand-new story and translate it into all 11 official languages.

Then we encourage adults and caregivers across the country to join us in reading it aloud to children on WRAD”.

This year’s story Where Are You? was written by Ann Walton, a well known South African author and illustrator of children’s books. The story can be downloaded from the Nal’ibali website.

“We’d like to encourage South Africans to register that they will be reading aloud and to share pictures of their reading sessions online,” Jacobsohn says.

She adds that most of the teaching in a child’s early years is oral, and being able to recognise and understand a wide pool of words better equips them to learn and succeed in the classroom.

“The reading of a story out loud not only shows children the value of books but starts discussions, builds bonds between the reader and the audience and motivates children to learn to read and enjoy books beyond their current reading ability.”

“Last year, with the help of our network partners and the public, we managed to read to over a million children. In 2019, our aim is to beat that record and reach 1.5 million!”

In order to monitor the success of WRAD, Nal’ibali asks that all participants log their reading activities on its website: https://nalibali.org/WRAD-2019.

Apart from promoting the Where Are You? story on digital and social media platforms, Nal’ibali’s network of partners – the schools project Story Powered Schools, literacy mentors and FUNda Leader volunteers – will be reading the story aloud at reading clubs and community centres across the country.

With the support of the Department of Basic of Education, thousands of school children and teachers will be joining the celebration too. A special event will be held on the morning of Friday 1 February, at Sandton Library, Johannesburg, with 200 children from Soweto and Alexandra.

The event will be attended by this year’s campaign ambassador, children’s author and social activist Lebohang Masango, and is supported by the Department of Education and its Read to Lead campaign.

Masango will give a special multilingual reading of Where Are You?.

She says: ‘Reading to your children is important because the benefits will follow them for their entire life.

Not only is it great for bonding but you are also expanding their vocabulary, knowledge and imaginations.
