The Progressives Leaders Association (PILA), an organization sponsoring an Igbo Language School in the U.S., says a similar school has been opened in South Africa. At a dinner in Johannesburg over the weekend, Mr Chima Umealo, coordinator of PILA in SouthAfrica said that 16 children had started lesson in the school. According to him, “Pila’s aim is to secure the Igbo language because UNESCO had predicted that the language was among those that will go out of fashion in no distant time.

We decided to come out with a programme to secure our language because a people without a language are no people,” he said. The coordinator said children born in South Africa, who are not opportune to communicate with others when they go home would be taught the language. He said that the children were taught during vacation, while arrangements had been concluded to teach them at weekends during school session.
