3. LITERANATION’S CHILDREN/YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES.
Our programmes are subdivided into:
1. Primary School development programme
2. Secondary School development programme
3. Youth Development programme (tertiary Schools)
The development programmes employs performing arts, literary lectures and readings as vehicles to help build skills, appreciate and develop literary and artistic talents in young people.
The mission of these programmes is to inculcate the love of literature and appreciation of creative arts and nurture creativity in young people in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions. We have chosen; book readings, performing arts, poetry slam, music, drama, and dance as effective conduits for accomplishing both our mission and our goals.
We invite established authors to visit primary, secondary and tertiary institutions, believing that an encounter with a real life author can be one of the best motivation any youth can have. We aim to invite over 10 renowned authors to visit schools each year, and inspire students to read with more enthusiasm, and help encourage students to write.
Information regarding our Development programmes will be posted on our blog and social media channels in advance of upcoming the events.
