IBBY-Yamada 2017: Zimbabwe

Access reading opportunities for young people in vulnerable communities

IBBY Zimbabwe organised a programme of readings and story telling to encourage young people to appreciate the value and use of books for recreation, life skills and general knowledge and even taking up writing as a hobby or career. The ad hoc readings were held in schools in vulnerable communities, including Harare – Hopley, Bulawayo - Nkulamame and Mutare - Dangamvura.
