Did you #ReadAloud

Written by: diannem

On 16th February South Africa celebrated #WorldReadAloudDay, an international reading-for-enjoyment campaign supported and driven in South Africa by Nal'ibali, with the aim of reaching half a million children across the country.

Across the world celebrities like Betty White and Morgan Freeman took part, while at home the Nal'ibali teams head out to various parts of the country to read to children of all ages.

Local SA Celebrity Buhle Ngaba read aloud in Zulu for school kids in Durban.
