We visited Dokaje street in NARAYI, Kaduna for a literacy outreach.
We had a total of 32 children. 20 were above the age of seven.
We discovered that parents are not actively involved in building literacy for their children.
Only 5% of respondents agreed that their parents spent at least 30 minutes a day reading with their children.
100% of respondents agreed that there are no community reading centres in Narayi. (We are doing a larger survey soon)
92% of the respondents were of the opinion that their parents had not bought them books in the last one year.
