The Puku Children’s Literature Foundation, in partnership with PanSALB, is pleased to invite you to an isiNdebele webinar titled ‘Ituthuko emntwaneni ngelimi lakhe lesiNdebele’ to be held on Tuesday 22 June 2021, 12:00pm – 14:00pm.

This is the sixth instalment in a series of curated conversations amongst writers, academics, publishers, activists, and institutions in the indigenous language ecosystem on The Role of Children’s Literature in preserving and promoting our Indigenous languages.

Through the webinars, we will deliberate the specific challenges and opportunities facing those working in the writing, publication, and promotion of African languages. Our panelists will explore themes such as the economics of indigenous languages, the challenges faced by African language practitioners, strategies to improve publishing as well as to increase access to reading materials.

The isiNdebele webinar will be facilitated by Moderator Mr Matthews Mokoena and our panelists include: Mr William Jiyana, Mr Buti M Jiane, Ms Evelyn Mncedi Ntuli, and Mr January Mthimunye.
