This is the largest gathering of Kenyan children reading aloud from the same text and at the same time in multiple locations. It is a 30-minute expressive and interesting reading exercise that runs from 8:30am-9.00am on the chosen day, in which children in different schools across the country read the same text at the same time.
They are joined in various ways by Reading Ambassadors drawn from various sectors of society. This year’s edition will be on the International Day of the African Child – 16 June 2021.
This day is significant as it raises awareness of the continuing need for improvement of the education provided to African children. It also celebrates the children of Africa and recognizes them as the change agents of the society.
