According to a Uwezo report of November, 2016, “Are our children learning?” 7 out of 10 children in primary school can not read an English story and do division. This is partly why only 3 of every 10 children who start P.1 sit for their Primary Leaving Examinations. In a country where, 52% of the population is children below 15, and mostly in primary school, this is a big challenge and an actual threat to national security and development.
We can not let this nightmare continue. It is our responsibility to secure our future and the future of generations to come, by giving these children an opportunity to fall in love with books, so they can LEARN to READ and be able to READ to LEARN.
