IN OUR OWN WORDS


IN OUR OWN WORDS

Only 2% of books published in South Africa are in our local African languages, yet 80% of the population speaks a language other than English or Afrikaans. We at Cadbury Dairy Milk want to change this, with a little bit of glass and a half goodness. All children should get the chance to fall in love with reading, and what better way to do this, than by creating enchanting stories written in their own language.  However, we need the generous intent of others to make it happen. By simply translating one word, you help co-author a library of African language children’s stories that will live on our website so anyone can download, read and enjoy the wonderful world of fairytales, fables and fantasy. This is just the start of our journey - to create, print, distribute and inspire with stories in all 11 South African languages which will enrich lives and hope to contribute towards raising the level of literacy in our country.

NAL'IBALI

Na'li Bali

We are delighted to introduce our NGO partner, Nali’bali. Nali’bali is very active in communities, creating books, educating on the importance of mother tongue reading, and most importantly helping children to fall in love with it - making them the perfect partner for us. They believe that children who regularly read and hear engaging stories in languages they understand, learn to love reading from an early age, and this becomes a real game-changer for education in South Africa.

OUR PRODUCTS

Introducing two new ways to enjoy the goodness of Cadbury Dairy Milk. New Salted Caramel adds a flavourful twist to the classic favourite. Roasted Almond reveals a whole new dimension of crunchy almond. Both, just like all our Cadbury Dairy Milk slabs, have a smooth and creamy wave of deliciousness moulded into a unique chocolate taste. Each is made from the finest ingredients and flavours, to bring the distinct taste of goodness to every slab.
