Under its Rwandan Children’s Book Initiative, Save the Children (Rwanda) introduces a new monthly gathering to foster children’s reading.
Abana Writing Café is a monthly children’s book event, organised by Rwandan Children’s Book Initiative, a project of Save the Children, whose mission is to see more children reading more and better books in Rwanda. The main idea is to combine three activities which people enjoy: storytelling, sharing knowledge on children’s books and receiving/giving feedback on individual children’s writer’s projects or works. The Café will offer its participants a variety of sources of information, starting from books and book trends, and it will serve as a platform to upcoming and established writers, poets, artists, storytellers and other enthusiasts with a keen interest in children’s books.
A public event with lots of interesting stories and people, it will also be an opportunity for various stakeholders in the book sector to spot and recruit new talent.
