Basetsana Sheane’s inspirational work with Nal’ibali

BY Nkosazana Ngwadla

Nal’ibali literacy activist and Tsebo Ke Lesedi Reading Club leader Basetsana Sheane recently hosted the Making Friends With Books event in Theunissen, Free State.

Aimed at sparking a love of reading for enjoyment in the area, the event had speakers from the literacy space in Free State, storytelling sessions, poetry, and a read-aloud session. Children also received copies of the Nal’ibali Read-Aloud Story Collection and “Kudu Gets A New Set of Ears” written by Martha Sijwally Tsiki at the event.

Basetsana is a perfect example of the contribution that we can all make towards improving literacy in our communities. To become a Nal’ibali Literacy activist and learn how to start your own reading club, WhatsApp “courses” to 0600 44 2254.
