Séance de contes à la bibliothèque de Niankorodougou au #Burkina

Les élèves du primaire de l’école Niankorodougou « B » assistent avec attention  à une séance de contes à la bibliothèque. Animée par la bibliothécaire Ouattara Karidia, le conte intitulé « Les 8 filles et Bouki-l’hyène » revient sur le vilain défaut que représente la gourmandise qui mène à la perdition. Quant au conte « A la recherche de la brebis du roi », il donne comme morale que la patience est un chemin d’or et qu’il faut toujours réfléchir avant d’agir. Les enfants se sont essayés eux-aussi à conter quelques histoires à leurs camarades.

Update from visits to three libraries in Upper East, Ghana

From Paul Ayutoliya, FAVL/CESRUD library coordinator:

IMG_20180926_124103 smThis is a brief report on happenings in the three community libraries. Attendance at the three libraries has been good. Major activities that characterized this month include individual reading of story books, group reading, riddles and games with story time. Effective daily patronages to the libraries are usually recorded in the Sumbrungu and Sherigu libraries, this is mainly due to the fact that these libraries are been surrounded by basic schools unlike the Gowrie-that has it’s basic schools distant from the library, so many a times it is the night sessions that patrons do come in their good numbers. At the Sumbrungu Library, patrons read story books in groups with the librarians and also had good riddle time with coordinator, during the night a good number of patrons come to study their notes taking from school, some copy notes from others whiles other also do their assignment work. Other also come to read story books individually. The patronage is increasing every day and we are doing all we need to do to make reading and learning continue to be very good.

The story is also the same at the Sherigu Library save that the night sessions attendance there is not as many as Sumbrungu. Over the week I paid a visit to the the library, it was Wednesday the 26th of September, the pupils of St. Peter and Paul Academy were in the library in their good numbers. With the assistance of the librarian and one teacher who came from class with some pupils, we divided the pupils in three different groups. One group read the story of Peter’s Wish with me. Another group read with the teacher Chidi likes only Blue and the last or third group read Diana, the hairdresser learns to read, one of the Literacy Changed my Life series with the librarian. We spend good time in our group readings answering and asking questions at the end of the reading. At the close of day everyone were happy.

The Gowrie library also have almost the same story of the library usage save that their attendance is mostly during the evening sessions. We today visited the library during the daily session and caught up with Mr. Akolgo Anaba who’s nicknamed ‘Americana’ Americana who is an adult told me he wants to read some of the story books with me in the library. So in the library I read with him the Crocodile Bread and The lucky one story books. It was a very very interesting encounter I have with this man. Americana once in a while as I read with him will talk about how he knows Accra especially when I mentioned Nima Mamoobi in the story of the Lucky One he exclaimed is in Accra! In the story of the Crocodile bread, Americana tried explaining to me with his broken English good and bad bread. To him bread with a lot sugar is not good especially when you taking it with tea that sugar is added reason being it can you sickness and so he prefer a bread without sugar. This and other fun discussion made our day. To conclude the community libraries are performing great and we are hopeful for more good performances.

 

Update from Favl/Cesrud Ghana libraries

Coordinator Paul Ayutoliya writes:

sumbrungu small sept 2018Basic schools resumed school on the second week of September on the 11th, a week after the climax of the vacation reading classes. The first week of schools reopening as usual was for major cleaning exercise in and around the surroundings of the various schools across the country. The respective three community libraries were also cleaned by the respective librarians with assistance from some pupils also. The patronage to the libraries for the first week during the daily sessions was quite good, as the days progresses patronage is picking up. The first week was characterized by individual readings, games and sharing with each other happenings during the vacations period. At the Sumbrungu Community Library, most of the patrons who shared their story said they spend their vacation periods attending free vacation reading classes that was organized by the library, they touch on a number of story books they read and the moral lessons, the fun with other colleagues and making of new friends from other schools. One of those who were attending the classes wanted to share with friends who did not attend the classes some riddles, he begun by putting this riddle to them: What belongs to you but it is mostly use by others? There were all kinds of funny answers such bicycles, shirts among others, Anaba told them the answer is simply your NAME. He told the friends he learnt all those riddles from the classes. Some also said during the vacation they were helping their parents in farming, taking care of animals among others. At close of that sharing with each other happenings during the vacation period, those who could not make it to the classes, were amazed the things they heard from the others who were attending the classes; the boldness in the way they talk, the story books read and the mother lessons, the riddles and rest. The look and indication from each face that were not able to attend the classes shows they will not miss the opportunity of attending the classes the next time it will be organize. The story of the first week of schools reopening is almost the same in the other two community libraries during my visits to the library. The night sessions attending is mostly patronized by the young adults, who come to read story books, work Maths, study science and the other related subjects.

Résumé de La gazelle et le caméléon de Nabié Wabinlé

Sanou Dounko écrit:

La gazelle et le caméléonCe weekend dernier j’ai eu le plaisir de lire un livre de contes du Burkina Faso intitulé La gazelle et le caméléon de Nabié Wabinlé. Ecrit dans un français simple, clair et limpide, l’auteur partage avec nous des contes bwaba riches en leçons de morale. Après avoir lu ces contes, celui qui m’a beaucoup marqué est le voyage du singe et le scorpion. Unis au départ pour un voyage réussi, le scorpion par sa lenteur et sa légèreté s’est fait transporter via les narines du singe. Se sentant dans de bonnes conditions de voyage, le scorpion refusa désormais de sortir des narines du singe et en même temps en profita pour lui donner des ordres ce qu’a fait le singe avant de tomber de fatigue. Croyant le singe mort, le scorpion sortit. C’est ainsi que le singe se réveilla. Furieux et pour se venger, le singe attrapa le scorpion, coupa sa queue et le mangea. Depuis se jour, chaque fois qu’un singe voit un scorpion, il coupe d’abord la queue ensuite il mange le reste.

Lecture de L’epopée de Soundiata Keita au #Burkina

Animateur FAVL Hervé Boué nous écrit:

En_lecture smL’epopée de Soundiata Keita un livre qui raconte l’histoire du roi le plus le plus célébré du manding ou actuel Mali. Naré Maghan Konaté roi du manding un chasseur redouté a eu une récompense de jeune fille en mariage après avoir tué u buffle qui déjà tué soixante-dix-neuf chasseurs et blessé quarante autres. Il aura la plus belle fille du village   Non ce serait la plus laide… L’histoire a décidé que ça soit ainsi. Sougoulon la vilaine était la deuxième femme du roi après Sassouma Berté lui donna plus tard un garçonnet le premier avant ses deux filles. L’enfant prodige Soundiata Keita a passé plus de temps à trainer et suicide trop d’inquiétudes sur les dires des devins. Son père Naré Maghan Konaté ne la jamais vu marché mais avant de mourir le donna un griot du nom de Balafasséké qui doit lui transmettre la mémoire de ancêtres.

Le roi de Sosso Soumagourou Kanté le plus redouté des temps avec son habillement en peau d’homme a été vaincu par  Soundiata à Kirina en 1235 et succède à son frère  ainé sur le trône de leur père. Il était devenu empereur de douze royaumes et son règne dura vingt-cinq ans.

Selon l’histoire Soundiata serait né un vendredi 20 Aout 1190 et décède le 7 Aout 1255 à Niani la ville qui était autre fois détruit par Soumangourou le roi sorcier.

Le monde est vieux, mais l’avenir sort du passe…
