The Children’s Book Project (Tanzania) works to develop a strong reading culture and a literate environment. It promotes local languages and strengthens the local book production industry through the training of teachers, writers, publishers and illustrators.
The Children’s Book Project for Tanzania (CBP) was started in 1991 in response to Tanzania’s acute shortage of books for children, and the lack of adequate skills among Book Sector personnel to produce these reading materials. CBP set out to assist with the production and distribution of
relevant reading materials and to encourage and support indigenous authorship.
