Our Literacy Programme is running in six underprivileged schools in the Southern Suburbs and is based on the model designed by The Shine Centre.

We offer literacy intervention to Grade 2 and 3 learners. Our trained literacy volunteers sit one-on-one with Foundation Phase learners. We have received permission from the Western Cape Department of Education and the school to take learners out of class.

In each session our volunteers work with learners by playing reading-related games and practicing their reading and writing skills in different, fun ways.

The programme allows children to learn at their own pace to overcome areas of difficulty and instils a love of books and reading by creating a fun and interactive environment that captures their attention.

We are seeing improvement rates of up to 78% in individual results of the most at-risk learners who participate in this programme.
