In an interview with Sylvia, she revealed to Radio 1 News that she discovered Radio 1FM on Instagram and got in touch with the protocols observed, thereby getting to know of the Generation program.
Libreria Ghana has donated 90 copies of Cock crow by Lawrence Damani(a book which contains short stories,poems and drama) to support the Generations program which gives children the opportunity to read on the air waves and also to be equipped with confidence in wisdom. The competition is among the basic schools.
“We are donating this because we support the program, we support it’s values and ideals because it’s an opportunity to get children engaged in reading for fun and that’s why we have decided to support it”, Sylvia Arthur added.
However, she surely hopes the children would show keen interests in reading not only the books but would be encouraged to read other books.
Moreover, her expectations for Generations is that the children enjoy reading and become lifelong readers which is very essential for the development of Ghana.
“I’m really hoping that the children will enjoy reading and become lifelong readers out of it and know that this is the start not the end of it after the end of the program… I really hope that a lot more children become readers which would be very essential for development in Ghana and then be encouraged to write them by themselves”, Sylvia concluded.
Generation is an educational program on Radio 1FM 100.7MHZ, where students from registered basic schools compete in spellings and readings on airwaves. This is aimed at promoting the child’s interest in reading and taking academics serious since they are the nation’s future and they will acknowledge Education as the key to success.
