Celebrating World Read Aloud Day in Kisumu's Millennium Cities!

Our network of LitClubs in Kisumu, Kenya that run in partnership with the Millennium Cities Initiative celebrated World Read Aloud Day ahead of the Kenyan elections. 

LitWorld Facilitators spent time at local primary schools reading aloud together, children shared their favorite stories with their classmates and were treated to read alouds from local community guest readers. 

In addition to activities in schools, LitWorld Facilitators traveled together to the women's prison to involve the women and the officers in this joyful day meant for all people.

Along the way to the prison, LitWorld leaders met a women who sells french fries and asked for an opportunity to read aloud. 

We are so moved by the leadership and inclusivity of this special celebration. Let's allow the joy emanating from each of these pictures to carry the read aloud movement forward. Make every day World Read Aloud Day.
