AFRICA KIDS BOOK CLUB

 Africa Kids Book Club is a social enterprise that fosters a reading culture amongst children where they have fun while reading.

 We believe that reading is food to the brain and when introduced at a young age, children will be better placed to understand and enjoy learning at school.

 We nurture young readers to become future transformative leaders by helping them to discover and develop their potential. Our focus areas are:

  • Reading skills
  • Writing skills
  • Public speaking
  • Creativity
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
  •  Life skills

 

Focus: 

 Our main focus is African literature. 

 We read African authored books with an aim of getting more knowledge of and from our African continent. 

 We read and review English and Kiswahili books. 

Team: 

 The book club was founded in 2017 by Monica Nyambura, an author and educator. 

 The team that manages the programs include 9 trained facilitators and 2 volunteers.
