We want to reach as many parents as we can with the book-sharing programme. We have been working closely with provincial government departments in the Western Cape to integrate book-sharing into mainstream services already serving families.
We started this by integrating book-sharing into:
- Western Cape Department of Health’s First Thousand Days programme and
- Western Cape Libraries’ services.
We have also created pathways for parents to connect through clinics and libraries, so that the book-sharing services reinforce and support each other.
This is a 3-year project, and over the three years we intend to expand to other spheres of government services as well.
