A year ago, I put the English and isiZulu versions of “Wayan and the Turtle King” on africanstorybook.org – a free, opensource platform. Anyone can download and print the stories for FREE.  Or, you can simply read the stories online. Anyone can add a new translation of a story.

Recently, African Storybook published an amended version of my story, “Wayan and the Turtles” as an ASB approved title.

Please check out the other translations currently available on their site:

Amharic: ” ዋያን እና የእንቁራሪቶቹ ንጉሥ “, translated by Mezemir Girma.

Kiswahili: “Wayan na kasa”, translated by Ursula Nafula.

Malagasy: ” Wayan sy ilay Mpanjaka Sokatra”, translated by Aina Harvel – Randrenjatovo.

The path that has opened up for my literacy project as a result of the Africanstorybook Project excites me. It is a wonderful feeling to be part of a collaboration, where people work together, spurred on by their passion for literacy and equality in education.

I hope that many children will be able to enjoy the story, as well as be able to educate themselves and their communities about single-use plastic.

Thank you to all the funding support partners who made it possible.
