Children’s Literacy

Our libraries, teacher training and literacy programs improve children's literacy in Ghana.

Children’s Libraries

The library is a model library which was set up in 2017 by Wilde Ganzen to be accessed by children in the Adentan municipality and its surrounding communities. Biblionef has helped other organisations set up other libraries like the Sumbrungu Community Library, Bolgatanga and the Okurase Community Library , Koforidua.

Book Donations

Biblionef donates books to under resourced child-focused organisations where there are teachers or facilitators to ensure that the books are used and well cared for. Organisations requesting books could be schools, pre-schools, children’s homes, street children’s organisations, refugee camps or any other organization with a socio-educational goal.

Reading Festivals

Biblionef organizes reading festivals for children in public schools across Ghana, to generate interest in reading through creating fun around books, for children to see reading as an enjoyable activity. Our festival are open to the community, although specific activities are reserved for invited public schools.

Teacher Training

Biblionef organizes training workshops three times a year to train teachers and heads of institutions in how to manage their libraries and how to promote reading.

Local Book Purchases

Biblionef believes that children will read more if they have access to storybooks in their own local language. We therefore organise the translation of English storybooks into local dialects. We have translated a book titled “Brenda has a dragon in her blood” authored by Hijltje Vink and based on a true story about a little girl infected with HIV. The book was translated into five major local dialects. We are presently translating another set of twelve books constituting the “cat and dog” series for lower primary.
