INTERNATIONAL LITERACY DAY, 2019

NATIONAL READING DAY (GH Reads)
This is a project World Readers has been observing and championing for some time now. However, this year, 2019 will witness a nationwide programme under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, dubbed, National Reading Day (NRD). This year’s celebration will widen the scope and get many children to read across the country.
It is refreshing to know that, the Non-Formal Education Division has been included in this year’s celebration. This was made possible by the instrumentality of the Ag. Director Mr. Francis Asumadu.
The programme offers a dais for the Division to prove to our stakeholders of efforts invested in the realization of the mandate of the Division.
Let us get ready to read. Are you ready?
