ERF Book Grant to Kenyan Schools

A request from Dr. Miriti Gervasio of Turkana University College, Lodwar, Kenya has resulted in a grant for nearly $5000 for the distribution of locally published graded readers to primary schools focussing on the Arid and Semiarid regions of Kenya where the literacy rate is low — 82%. Kenya as a whole has one of the highest literacy rates in Africa, standing at 82.6%. The distribution of the readers, along with their research project will help determine whether extensive reading can accelerate literacy in this region.
