GBDC and the Office of the First Lady Organize Reading Roadshow
Ghana Book Development Council (GBDC) and the Office of the First Lady (OFL) have organised a Reading Roadshow in some districts in the Ashanti, Bono East and Bono Regions. This was the second phase of an exercise that was started in August 2019. Some of the beneficiary communities include Danyame and Amankwaatia in the Ashanti Region, Atebubu in the Bono East, and Sunyani East and West in the Bono Region. The event took off on Monday November 4, 2019 and ended Thursday November 7, 2019.
The Reading Roadshow comprised various reading sessions, reading competitions and spelling bees, geared toward whipping up the interest of school children to cultivate the habit of reading. Book booths containing assorted reading materials were also given out to some selected schools in the Bono East and Ashanti Regions.
We had Metropolitan/ Municipal/ District Chief Executives, a Representative of the Office of the First Lady and District Directors of Education read to the pupils and encourage them to cultivate the habit of reading.
