Xhosa Literature Projects
The Department promotes the development of a reading culture in the Western Cape by supporting establishment of Xhosa book clubs and literature projects. This is a way of helping combat the challenges of poor reading and writing. Public participation in reading is vital and members of the book clubs include learners, elders and unemployed youth. The Department aims to support the development of literate communities where all can benefit from the opportunities that these book clubs have to offer.
