Extending literacy beyond the classroom: youth groups and library partnerships for sustainability [CIES 2019 Presentation]

Under the Tusome-Nakuru County Youth Bunge Forum (NCYBF), the program sought to engage the youth in improving early literacy skills among Grades 1-3 children in Nakuru County in Kenya. The Nakuru County Youth Bunge Forum (NCYBF) signed a memorandum of agreement with the local public library, the Kenya National Library Services (KNLS), Nakuru Branch to provide enhanced literacy activities. This CIES 2019 presentation will share the outcomes of the partnership, the effect on children’s literacy skills and the long term benefits to the program implementation and its sustainability.
