Reading competitions in Sumbrungu, Ghana

Benedict Akana, CESRUD Library coordinator, writes:

Biblionef has partnered with CESRUD to support creating libraries in rural schools. They trained teachers as school library reps of which the coordinator of the community libraries spearheaded in the supervision, and rendered other training programs to teachers as far as motivating reading in rural schools is concerned. And as part the library program this year, CESRUD coordinated a reading festival or competition among pupils from thier various circuits. CESRUD/FAVL collaborates with two circuits giving them all the support needed to assist the pupils in reading, thus West B circuit and Bolga-North circuit. Each circuit has its timetable for their inter-schools primary/JHS competitions. Here are some photos from the latest competition in October.
