Netherlands Development Organisation, SNV, has trained 36 primary school teachers from Mkolani, Buhongwa and Sangabuye wards in Mwanza City in using newspapers as a teaching aid.

SNV communication official, Ayeta Anne Wangusa, said the objective of the training was to inculcate the reading culture in pupils for them to become conversant and inquisitive about local and foreign affairs.

Empirical evidence has indicated that the use of newspapers for teaching pupils boosted the pupils intellectually as well as their reading culture, confidence and vocabulary, she said.
