On Saturday, 20th September 2014, Portia Dery organised a programme to inculcate reading and writing into the youngsters of today. The programme was dubbed “A Fun Day for Reading and Writing”. It took place at the Northern Regional Library in the Tamale Metropolis and was well patronized. Many speakers were invited to interact with the children, including myself. In Africa, many know the safest place to keep a treasure is in a book because people do not like to read. This is what Portia Dery seeks to curb. A very noble gesture by the young writer and blogger. Here are some of the moments.
The children enjoyed the reading and learning moments, played to their satisfaction and drank the official Ghanaian drink Soobolo with pineapple taste. In all, it was a successful event. Congratulations Portia Dery for following through your good vision.
