This book tells the story of three young girls adventuring into the
Zambezi for swimming races. They learn about competition, defeat,
dealing with frustration, and how to forgive.
The tale, written in Oshindonga and English, was part of the Writing for Kids project, a NIED (National Institute for Educational Development) programme designed to promote the literacy of young learners through stories which carry positive local messages. The project took Namibian students through the writing and illustrating process. This story was written by students from the Caprivi College of Education. The illustrations are by Kleopas Jambeinge from the John Muafangejo Art Centre.
