Literacy Workshop for Anambra State Prisons, Oct. 16-18, 2017

Children’s Centre collaborated with Libraries for Literacy Foundation in organizing a 3-day training workshop for welfare officers in charge of prison libraries and librarians in Anambra State. Workshop organizers were Virginia Dike and Maureen Okpala, with CP Nwakeze and Emmanuel Nwangene coordinating for the Nigerian Prisons Service, while Grace Onyebuchi, Ngozi Osadebe, and Anthony Izuchukwu served as resource persons. The focus was on teaching the trainers how to use comic book creation as a tool for developing literacy and entrepreneurial skills among inmates. This approach to literacy development was then applied in the 4 Anambra State prisons in 2018.
