The Family Literacy Project: Sharing the Pleasure of Early Literacy
Desmond, Snoeks
Reading & Writing: Journal of the Reading Association of South Africa, v1 n1 p73-82 2010
The Family Literacy Project works with women in rural KwaZulu-Natal to help them improve their levels of literacy and provides encouragement as they support the literacy development of their children. These women have regularly visited neighbouring families to read to and play with children and discuss early childhood development and relevant health messages with adults. In addition community libraries and book boxes provide books for these under resourced areas. The findings of an independent evaluation are used to highlight aspects of the project.
