The Nal'ibali training team strives to enable adults across the country to engage in literacy and reading-for-enjoyment activities with children, by:

• Promoting multilingualism and use of African languages
• Growing reading and writing habits through reading for personal meaning and satisfaction
• Supporting early biliteracy teaching approaches and multilingual education
 
If activities around reading are in languages that children do not understand, using methods that are not accessible or fun, they become meaningless and undesirable for children. Whether formal or informal education, reading has to meaningful. We keep this in mind when we train adults on literacy and storytelling.
 
The focus is on creative self-expression, interaction, exploration and thinking together. Training sessions are always practical and experiential, and our training team inspire people across the country by creating a story-rich, relaxed environment that focusses on the participants' experience as the crux of the training.
