First Words in Print (FWIP)

FWIP’s mission is to promote a culture of reading among very young children and their caregivers, in order to contribute towards children’s school readiness. Their objective is to ensure that all very young South African children have access to stimulation of picture books and story books in their own languages.

This project operates nationwide with a focus on pre-schoolers.

FWIP’s project is monitored quarterly and reports can be obtained from the Centre for the Book.
