The Yizani Sifunde team enjoyed songs, games, and stories when they visited four ECD centers and homes in Kwelerha and Mdantsane, Eastern Cape in September 2022! It was exciting to see the children enjoying the read-aloud sessions and their parent’s commitment to building a culture of reading aloud and storytelling at home.
