MONDAY AFTERNOON READING
After school, when everyone has had a bite to eat (Thanks to Mama Mirriam), the girls and boys divide up into separate reading groups. A majority of the kids go to primarily Xhosa speaking public schools, so getting to read English books out loud really helps them develop their fluency. We are in paernership with Fundza. www.fundza.co.za
