Reading ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ in the Great Rift Valley

4th January 2019 | Media

In northern Kenya’s vast Great Rift Valley, the village of Lagam sits nestled within the cliffs. Poverty and illiteracy are high but families hunger for education. Even so, 12 year old Pascalia loves to read – and every child loves a great story.

Pascalia is one of the estimated 29 million people around the world who has beautiful, brand new books to read because of your support. Watch her film here:

We would also like to extend a very warm thank you to players of People’s Postcode Lottery for funding this film. Without players’ support, the film would not have been possible.
