European Union enables publishing of Barbadian Children’s Literature as Author gives back to schools
His Excellency Mikael Barfod addresses teachers and students at the Eagle Hall Primary School. The diplomat stressed the importance of showing children from early why it is necessary to be aware of green practices and being able to read & write.
The proof was in the printing of a series of children’s books on Zana, a character created by Aisha King. The author, who qualified for a Non-State Actor’s Grant from the EU, was over the moon and told her many Facebook fans;-
“Many thanks to the EU Delegation for their commitment to the Zana Series and allowing me to live my dream. To Mr Jones, Principal for the Eagle Hall Primary school for allowing us to share the message of caring for the environment with their wonderful children. And to my Mother, Daisy Suzanne King , for her dedication and assistance with the storytelling. And my Father, Roosevelt King for guiding me every step of the way through the business process. To the Press for their attendance and support especially Bajan Reporter.Com. To Zana’s Helpers my daughter, Samaria King and my sister, Tyeisha Payne. Of course to all of Zana’s Fans and Supporters a great Big THANK YOU!“
Here’s the author enthralling a group of pupils at the Eagle Hall Primary with one of Zana‘s many adventures;-
