New mother’s initiative

This initiative helps mothers to create a genuine love of reading for their child from the moment they are born. Maternal health nurses, hospitals and medical practitioners work with mothers to provide literacy mentoring support. 

They are provided with a baby book, height chart and most importantly a tote bag. This tote bag is very significant. It encourages mothers to always carry books with them where ever they go.


“The mentoring support we have received has been so important to start a reading routine with our baby… We have been provided with a baby board book and I guess my baby still doesn’t understand what I am reading but she just loves the pictures on it”
