2011 NATIONAL RECORD ATTEMPT ON THE DAY OF THE AFRICAN CHILD PDF Print E-mail

The Kenya Reading Revolution is hoping to set a National Record for ‘the most number of people reading the same text aloud inreading revolution flyer different locations’ at 9.00 a.m. Thursday June 16 2011, also the Day of the African Child.

The Reading Revolution, a campaign to excite children about reading, is a three year long joint initiative by Storymoja Africa (Publishers) and the Kenya National Library Services. This year, the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms Programme will also be involved.

The 2011 theme for the day of the African Child is ‘all for urgent action in favour of street children.’ To celebrate reading and highlight issues that children face on the streets, a special story titled Lydia’s Gift will be read in various schools across the country. The story was written with and inspired by two street boys. Lydia’s Gift has also been deliberately left unfinished. Students are welcome to submit their own endings; the best of which will be published on the Reading Revolution website.
