KBF to in­tro­du­ce rea­ding app

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

The Na­ti­o­nal Foun­da­ti­on for the Child­ren’s Book Fes­ti­val (KBF) Su­ri­na­me will in­tro­du­ce its mo­bi­le rea­ding ap­pli­ca­ti­on ‘Lees je Wijs’ on Mon­day. The in­tro­duc­ti­on of the rea­ding app is part of the foun­da­ti­on’s ef­forts to pro­mo­te Uni­ver­sal Child­ren’s Day. The KBF aims at pro­mo­ting rea­ding plea­su­re and con­tri­bu­ting to edu­ca­ti­on through the use of mo­dern tech­no­lo­gy. The rea­ding app will be laun­ched at the TMIL- cen­ter lo­ca­ted at the sta­te uni­ver­si­ty. This year the Uni­ted Na­ti­ons Child­ren’s Fund has teamed up with over 200 pro­mi­nent wri­ters from around the glo­be to com­me­mo­ra­te Uni­ver­sal Child­ren’s Day. UN spo­kes­man Farhan Haq said Mon­day that no­ve­lists, play­wrights and poets ha­ve con­tri­bu­ted tiny sto­ries of around se­ven li­nes each for the cam­paign ahead of UNICEF’s 70th an­ni­vers­a­ry on Dec. 11. Ni­ge­ria’s Chi­ma­man­da Adi­chie, Bra­zil’s Pau­lo Coelho and Bri­tain’s Chris­ti­na Lamb we­re among the au­thors who con­tri­bu­ted sto­ries on the the­me: “What I want from eve­ry child.” The week­long cam­paign, which was con­cep­tu­a­li­zed by Fin­nish First La­dy Jen­ni Hau­kio, ends on Nov. 20 – the an­ni­vers­a­ry of the adop­ti­on of the UN Con­ven­ti­on on the Rights of the Child.
