Children who love to read, excel at school and go on to become constructive members of society. It all starts with reading.
READ to RISE is a non-profit organisation that promotes youth literacy in under-resourced communities in South Africa. We visit classes to inspire children to read and give them access to new story books. Many children have never owned a book before.
We want to give 20,000 learners in Mitchells Plain and Soweto their very own OAKY book, as many children have never owned a book before. We believe that book ownership is essential in igniting a love for reading.
We don't just drop off the books, rather we visit each class with adult volunteers and have an interactive session with the learners.
To date, we have given out over 220,000 new books!
Sponsor a book for a child for only R50 and make a difference in a child's life.
