Buddy Reading Kenya

The NBDCK (National Book Development Council of Kenya) project aims to raise reading outcomes by offering extracurricular reading opportunities to public school children in the Kisii area of western Kenya. This is a micro level incremental innovation which originally included comparison to a control group, but this is no longer the case.  Grade six students (‘mentors’) are trained to read with grade 1 and 2 students (‘buddies’) during informal small group sessions supervised by teachers trained to this end.
