On the 26th October 2016, the National Literacy Agency, with the support of Banif Bank, launched Rakkonti, a three-year project aimed at boosting language and literacy skills including reading, listening, speaking, writing, and critical thinking among early years and primary school children. Rakkonti promotes traditional Maltese tales through digital animations, music and puppet re-enactments. These tales are written and illustrated by Trevor Zahra, and may either be read as a narrative, or dramatised through the use of puppets which will be distributed in all Primary state schools across Malta and Gozo. An original song written by Trevor Zahra and composed by Dominic Galea accompanies each tale. These tales may be accessed on the Resources section on this page, and the animations may be viewed on the YouTube channel L-Aġenzija Nazzjonali tal-Litteriżmu​.
