Kiswahili Story Database has published the third set of stories and folktales for 2011. This collection is about Mashairi (poems). The database features folktales and stories in Kiswahili with no English translation. We intentionally use stories and folktales as it preserves the
cultural nuances that often get lost in formal language instruction. This makes Kiswahili Story Database a unique and useful tool that encourages active engagement.
The database publishes quarterly. Kiswahili Story Database is available by subscription to individuals and institutions.
