For nine years, Tronox’s Reading Club has helped to kindle interest in reading for children and young people in the communities of Areias, Jauá and Arembepe, state of Bahia. In 2016, 249 club meetings recorded 10,572 attendances.
In addition, extra activities at partner education institutions totaled another 985 students served.
Tronox’s Reading Club works on three aspects:
a) reading sessions on club premises;
b) activities at partner public schools; and
c) teacher training.
The club’s wide-ranging program includes storytelling sessions and cultural and literacy activities (screening films, music, free reading, writing workshops, drawing and painting, theatrical performances, and others).
Continuing on the same lines since the Club started, attendees were instigated to think about environmental issues through activities developed with monitors in 2016.
