The Ghana Library Association (GLA) in collaboration with eSyllabus for Africa, a non-governmental organization (NGO), has organized a reading clinic for three schools in the Savelugu/Nanton Municipality.
The beneficiaries are the World Vision sponsored school children who are in the upper primary in Fazihini Methodist Primary, Dingoni E/A Primary and Zieng E/A Primary schools in the Savelugu/Nanton Municipality in the Northern Region. As part of the programme, various items such as; books, pencils, erasers, crayons, bottled water, biscuits and soft drinks, were distributed to the pupils.

The title of the story was ‘Kente for a King’ written by Angela Christian and retold by Kathy Knowles. This is an interesting fiction about the journey of Opoku, a weaver from Bonwire, Ghana and his quest to make the most magnificent kente cloth for his beloved King.
