Providing free, openly licensed stories in African languages for early readingBy Saide
Organisation URL: saide.org.za
Funded by Comic Relief, Saide's African Storybook Initiative aims to stimulate the provision and use of free and openly licensed stories in local African languages for early reading.
The initiative is conducting pilots in rural and urban sites across Kenya, Uganda, Lesotho and South Africa. It supports multilingual development by providing a website (and other delivery mechanisms) where early reading stories can be created, found and adapted, or translated into a number of local African languages.
Their vision is for all African children to have enough stories in a language familiar to them, to practice and learn to love reading.
