Namibia: Children Learn Serious Writing

The Ministry of Education is to receive books from the American Embassy this morning during the launch of the educational programme, Writing by Kids.

The Ambassador of the United States of America Dennise Mathieu will officially hand over the books this morning to the Minister of Education, Nangolo Mbumba. The Writing by Kids activities started early last year with a training session for teachers in six target regions on developing personal journal writing in fourth grade and seventh grade classrooms. The participating teachers conducted intensive, regular writing lessons and activities in their classrooms. The result of those lessons is an anthology of personal journal entries, which have been collected in the book titled "My Journal".

The final book in the series of Writing for and by Kids has been sponsored by USAID. The book will serve as a supplementary reader to improve reading, writing and life skills in primary schools.
