As you may know, today is World Literacy Day. Literacy is a powerful tool for personal and social liberation. People who can read and write can broaden their horizon; they can access a wealth of information; they can have a voice and tell their own stories.
At Farafina Books, we are all about telling our own stories and helping others to do the same. That’s why we are donating a total of 100 books to select government schools in Lagos in honour of World Literacy Day. More on that later.
In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you! What are you doing to support literacy? In what other ways do you think publishers and ordinary people like you can support literacy in Nigeria?
