Imagine 1000’s of children reading aloud at the same time across UK and Kenya for a common goal.


Reading Aloud is a shared adventure promoting children’s literacy and a love of reading.


On 12th July 2024 thousands of Kenyan children will be simultaneously reading aloud in an attempt to break a world record and raise sponsorship to build libraries in schools across Kenya.


We want to raise our voices in Nottinghamshire in unity and encourage as many UK school children as possible to simultaneously read aloud on that day. Thereby raising awareness of the importance of reading for young people and raising funds to buy books for Kenyan children
