The image is an iconic part of the development of Niteo Africa’s vision of investing in literacy: children pouring over a picture book! What delight!
We believe that literacy will help children to flourish, blossom, be bright, and to shine, the meaning of “Niteo.”
The newest research encourages us to keep investing in a reading culture; inspiring children around the world to keep giving, reading, and living!
Have you heard about the new research out of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development? It was conducted in 14 countries and they identified the two key parental activities that affect student performance in school more than others:
- reading books to children when they are just beginning school.
- talking with adolescents about topical political and social issues.
The launch of our newest sustainable literacy centre at Kawanda Senior Secondary school on October 6th will provide an opportunity for students of all ages to participate in these activities with mentors, peers, teachers, and parents.
We look forward to how Canadians and Ugandans will grow together as part of this effort!
