World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and creates a community of readers taking action to show the world that the right to literacy belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day is celebrated by millions of people in more than 100 countries thanks to people like you who participate and spread the word across the globe!
We want to be part of the global celebrations by writing stories that would be read aloud. These are short stories that inspire us. They should be around the following themes in line with the Litworld 7 strengths countdown:
Share a story telling challenge on social media based on the following themes:
- (Adults from 18 years and above). Submit a story of 300 words maximum with a moral lesson on Confidence or Belonging.

The stories should be handwritten and clear photos of the story submitted to our Facebook or Twitter messenger. Send your full name, phone number, class or age, school, along with your photo story. Parents, encourage and help your children to participate. The deadline for submissions is on Monday 20th February, 2017, at 10 am.
