What’s it all about?
Literacy day and heritage month is celebrated in September and Nal’ibali is celebrating the rich diversity of culture in South Africa, by reawakening a love of African stories.
How Nal'ibali is celebrating
This Literacy Month, Nal’ibali invites all South Africans to share their storytelling talents, by telling us their favourite story. Every story has a main character, and often that character is a hero. And we are giving away 5 x R1000 Takealot vouchers to the 5 best stories we get! See the competition entry details further down on this page.
How to get started
To honour cultural diversity in South Africa we have written six brand new stories by Zulu, Xhosa, Sesotho, Setswana, Afrikaans, and Sepedi authors, the six most widely spoken languages in our country, and each translated into English. Available as bilingual story cards, the stories touch on cultural practices unique to each cultural group and are here to help us learn about and celebrate one other’s heritage and customs.
Read all six stories – and write your own! We’d love to hear about your favourite custom. Enter the competition.
The stories are available for you to download and enjoy with your family FOR FREE.
