Celebrating World Read Aloud Day 2020
'Education dominated the headlines in January, with the 2019 matric results being announced and children across the country going back to school or starting school for the first time. There is no doubt that quality education is key to helping solve South Africa’s economic and employment crisis.
“One of the biggest stumbling blocks in literacy development in South Africa is many young children’s lack of access to books,” said Joanna Mondon, Group Digital Marketing Manager, Hollard South Africa. “Hollard is committed to empowering children to have a better chance in life. In celebration of World Read Aloud Day on 5 February 2020, we’re inviting South Africans to do their bit to get books into the hands of young kids countrywide through the InstaStory Books initiative, which uses https://www.hollard.co.za/better-futures/InstaStoryBooks Instagram Stories to create 10-page printable childrens’ books.'
