Adegbite, Wale (2003)

Book chapter

Karatu (which means "reading" in Hausa) is a nongovernmental organisation (NGO) whose aim is to ensure that every Nigerian child learns to read. By training people who are already active in the reading development field, Karatu's Training of Trainers Programme attempts to bridge the gap between people researching reading methods and people working at community level to teach children to read. This paper reports author's experience on that programme.
