Reading and Storytelling for ECD Practitioners

On 28 April 2021 a group of ECD practitioners gathered in the hall of the St Pauls Anglican Church in downtown Durban for a reading and storytelling workshop with our partner Nal’ibali . 

The Reading and Storytelling Workshop was facilitated by Sibongiseni Blose of Nal’ibali.

Romany Roberts and the Wentworth Team were there in full force. Romany said, “Thank you so much Linda Zama Foundation for making this training possible there are exciting times ahead. We appreciate you for your passion in early childhood development.”

Thank you St Paul’s Anglican Church for allowing the Nal’ibali-Linda Foundation workshop to enjoy your beautiful facility.

“Nal’ibali is built on the simple logic that a well-established culture of reading can be a real game-changer for education in South Africa. Literacy skills are a strong predictor of future academic success in all subjects – and children who regularly read and hear engaging stories, in languages they understand, are well equipped and motivated to learn to read and write. A significant body of research reinforces the link between reading for pleasure and improved outcomes for children.”
