Event description

Description

Reading for change is one of Afflatus Africas projects that aims to cultivate the culture of reading and writing. Through our own intentions, and perspectives on how Rwandan citizen, especially youth, should use reading to change their lives to high standards and focused lives.

Reading for change event is a series of storytelling, book review, panel discussions and networking for encouraging everyone to develop the culture of reading and writing. It brings together authors, readers, poets, publishers, and librarians every month.

We made a decision of paying subscription for 20 high school students per yeah at Kigali Public Library as a way of encouraging schools and parents to subscribe their children and help them to get access to book hence increase their reading capability and changing their lives. We are also planning to start coaching to young people who are interested in Writing.

It was realized that some people took reading responsibilities for granted. It is time to awake the courage to fulfill our responsibilities as literates. The goal of this project is to eradicate the lack of open mindedness that results into lack of trust and emotional decisions that do not directly affect the youth's lives today but have long term disadvantages.

Our objectives are to create a platform writers and booklovers to connect and learn from each other. We look forward to find mentors for readers and writers and organizing competitions to help them to unveil their potentials. In the course of the competitions; subscriptions will be offered to young people for preparation and we have successfully began the course of the competitions by handing 5 high school students subscriptions. The winners of the competitions shall be awarded.

The targeted outcomes of this event are to create hope and confidence in youth, reduce delinquency, lead youth to living a purposeful life and tackle everyday life challenges by being day to day learners through the books they read.

Afflatus Africa is a team of Rwandan youth with the ambition of becoming a non-governmental organization. We act as a link between the person you are and a person you dream to be. We work with youth for youth.

The idea of the organization came to Ganza Kanamugire Bertin as a way of helping youth to understand that they should be problem solvers in their communities.

Leaving a strong and impactful legacy to our beloved Africa.
