September 8 = UN literacy Day

We invite you to make reading a joy for every child!
By organising Sponsored Reading Events! So called: “Bookathlons”!

_Bookathlons
Bookathlon organised by club Eupen, Belgium

Let’s make the dreams come true of so many children, who are longing for books and stories and perspectives!

What to do?

  1. Choose a day and a location and invite the parents, neighbours and friends. Or decide just to do it at school and invite all children of the school to participate like a marathon.
  2. Ask children to read one page or more from a reading book (teachers know best which one to choose!)
  3. Use the sponsor card available in the toolbox to let the children get sponsored for their reading. A letter for the parents is also available.
  1. Choose a school (see “schools” page on website) you want to sponsor and make it possible that with your reading event many children without books are now also able to read.
  2. Perhaps you would like to connect to the school and exchange knowledge as pupils, as teachers or as mothers?
