7th Pan-African Reading for All Conference – Gaborone, Botswana July 11th – 14th, 2011

The purpose of the Pan-African Reading for All Conference(s) is to develop ways of translating “Education for All” into “Reading for All”.  The 7th Pan-African Reading for All Conference will be hosted by the Reading Association of Botswana and will be an opportunity for teachers, writers, librarians, publishers, and development workers from Botswana and other nations to continue developing a coordinated approach to literacy in Africa.  In addition, the network of educators and other professionals across Africa for sharing best practices and research will be strengthened.  A greater responsiveness among authors and publishers to the needs of the newly emerging literate populations of Africa anticipated as a result of Education for All will be provoked.  Overall, the conference will highlight support structures needed, to be established or strengthened, for the promotion of reading as a cornerstone for the Education for All process, nationally and internationally.
