6th-Pan African Reading For All Conference at DSM

Pan African Reading for All Conference Program August 10 – 14 2009 at University of Dar Es Salaam

The Pan-African Reading for All (RFA) Conference is one of the most exciting and most memorable literacy events on the African continent. It is organized bi-annually by the International Reading Association’s International Development Committee in Africa (IRA/DAC) and the National Reading Association in the host country. The first edition was held in 1999 in the glamorous South African City of Pretoria. The second edition was held in Abuja in Nigeria in 2001. In 2003, the third edition was held in Kampala, the city of seven hills in Uganda. In 2005, the 4th edition of the Pan-African Reading for All conference was taken down south to Swaziland, commonly known as the Switzerland of Africa because of its scenic beauty and climate. The most recent edition of the conference held in August 2007 took glace in the West African country of Ghana, known for its gold wealth. The up coming 6th Pan-African Reading for All Conference is being organized by the International Reading Association’s International Development Committee in Africa (IRA/IDCA) in collaboration with the Reading Association of Tanzania (CCHAUTA.) and Children’s Book Project for Tanzania (CBP) to take place at the University of Dar Es Salaam, in Tanzania from August 10th -14th , 2009.
