4TH EDITION OF THE LIBRARY LITERACY PROGRAMME READING COMPETITION
AfriGrowth Foundation believes that a child born without good education is a liability to the community. This brought about the implementation of the library reading program, designed to encourage the “back to reading culture” in the underserved communities.
AfriGrowth Foundation periodically organizes reading competitions to assess the impact of this program in the primary school and evaluate the reading skills of pupils. The reading competition equally serves the purpose of encouraging and challenging the schools’ administration and teachers to continue to sustain the program, by continuous coordination of reading activities in the schools.
The event also brings together all the major stakeholders from the Universal basic Education Board (UBEB), Local Education Authority (LEA) and the Australian High Commission, Nigeria Direct Aid Program (DAP) to interact closely with the pupils and make recommendations for improvement.
The fourth edition of the Reading Competition, organized for seven primary school in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) was held on Monday, July 17, 2017 at the Hall of Excellence, AMAC Local Education Authority, Zone 2, Wuse, Abuja.
