  1. Reading4Healing Workshops

We visit hospitals and offer reading workshops (events) for children who are on admission for chronic ailments. We read to them and offer children’s books, toys, and care packages. Our programs have brought joy and comfort to hundreds of sick and disadvantaged children in Cameroon and Togo.

Muna Kalati also donated hundreds of books to victims of the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon and we regularly hold projects which target child victims of violence at the centre of refugees in Dschang and hospitalized children. The Maison d’ Education et de Protection des Enfants (MAEPE), which is specialised in assisting disadvantaged children in delicate sectors like education, health and nutrition, helps in that regard.

During the first edition which was held in the Dschang District Hospital,  20 children were presented with books, toys and snacks. This number increased in the second edition where 60 to 70 children were given books. Due to covid restrictions, the number of recipients dropped to 30 in the third edition, which took place in Bafoussam.

Four (o4) Editions of Reading for Healing to vulnerable children in hospitals and orphanages have been held.

Impact/ Benefits

These workshops are a bibliotherapy, a creative arts therapy that involves storytelling or the reading of specific texts. We use the kids’ relationship to the content of books and poetry and other written words as therapy. These activities give hope to the chronically sick children and cheers them up.

Reading4Healing workshops are conducted in December and this brings the spirit of Christmas to the children. They feel loved and are able to forget the pains or effects of whatever ailment they may be having. Muna Kalati has donated hundreds of children’s books to children living in conflict areas.

How to contribute or participate?

Interested organisations and individuals can contribute or participate by sponsoring the events. You can also decide to host us at your health institution if there are sick children on admission. Kindly reach out to programs@munakalati.org to inquire or book a session.




  1. Reading4Pleasure Workshops

Here, Muna Kalati together with trained instructors go into the field to guide and interact with children from selected orphanages and disadvantaged areas through exciting, fun-filled educational activities and reading workshops.  Every year, the project was organized together with  the Franco-Cameroonian Alliance of Dschang.


Children are exposed to leisure reading through fun, creative and child-centred activities. They become used to the idea that reading is not just for grades in school but can also be done for pleasure, which builds the habit of reading. It also encourages creativity, innovation, cognitive growth and development.


The Reading for Pleasure workshops is in its fourth year since its inception in Cameroon. The event is now run in two sessions due to the increased demand for it. Six (06)  Reading for Pleasure workshops have so far been held in Cameroon and Togo.

Muna Kalati wishes to replicate the model in deprived communities, orphanages, and children’s hospitals.

How to contribute or participate?

Sponsorships and contributions are welcome. Interested parties can also volunteer to participate by helping or volunteering on the ground during the events and also help in the planning process. If you would like to be a part of this great event, kindly contact programs@munakalati.org
