‘Double Trouble’ is a collaboration fundraiser between Magicbird Publishing, Wisdom Club For Children, the British Council and Live House KL, in efforts to raise funds for The Storybook Project.
This exciting grassroots project focuses on improving the teaching and learning of English in 6 under-privileged Primary schools in a targeted rural community. A variety of activities will improve the English teachers’ pedagogic skills particularly in the area of teaching reading and literacy, and encourage the involvement of parents and the local community.
The parents and teachers will share local ethnic folk stories which will be translated into English, illustrated and published as storybooks for use by teachers, parents and children alike.
Reading is the foundation of all education, and this project aspires to promote a life-long love of reading among these Primary school children.
