South African PEN has partnered with the Nal’ibali reading and literacy campaign that was initiated and developed by the Project for Alternative Education in South Africa, at the University of Cape Town. The aim of the project is to translate African writers’ children stories into the 11 official languages in South Africa. By providing children with stories in their mother tongues the project is planning to aid the children’s later educational, social and emotional development and support both African literature and linguistic diversity in South Africa.
