Nal'ibali is a national literacy development organisation that promote love of reading in children from birth to 12 years of age, we use and advocate for use of stories (told or read) in home languages as a medium to build language and literacy skills in foundation stages of childrens development. We have a presence in all provinces and use TV, radio, reading supplements, reading clubs and training as tools to promote a reading culture in the country

Nal'ibali was established 12 years ago, turning 11 years this year. It is well known for working at scale and using platforms and resources that can reach children and adults who facilitate literacy development in all settings (homes, schools, ECD centres and communities). Nal'ibali believes reading is a socio-cultural practice that starts and is developed outside the school environment before school age
