Children across the country have been charged to adopt a reading culture as it commemorates this year’s edition of World Book Day.
The call came from Airtel Nigeria, through its employees.
It would be recalled that World Book Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on April 23, 1995, and it is set aside to carry out activities to encourage a culture of reading for all ages.
Besides the call for children to imbibe reading culture, the firm also unveiled plans for marking World Book Day, saying they will donate thousands of reading books to children across its adopted primary schools in Nigeria while also hosting interactive reading sessions with the children in the schools.
The programme, which is at the instance of the company’s award-winning Employee Volunteer Scheme (Airtel EVS), will be held in primary schools in Lagos, Ogun, Kaduna, Cross River, Imo and Kwara, and it is entirely funded by employees of Airtel Nigeria.
