ActionRead! Build Youth Community Literacy Leaders

This festive season, you can help transform communities across South Africa by partnering with help2read. All funds raised will go towards our Literacy Tutor Programme, which provides unemployed literate adults with training and work experience, while delivering our literacy programme in impoverished township schools.

The Need

Township schools fail to equip learners with basic literacy skills that provide a foundation for learning. Classes are overcrowded & lack reading resources. Communities have no libraries & no safe, recreational or educational infrastructure for children especially during school holidays. Parents have long working days with little precious time for one-on-one reading help. No wonder that 80% of Grade 5s (9/10 years) have not mastered basic reading skills. Our Literacy Tutors can change that.

The Solution

Unemployed township youth trained as literacy tutors & supported in the delivery of reading help & the operation of reading clubs, providing community access to reading help, reading resources & literacy skills development programmes, promoting a culture & love of reading. Mastery of literacy skills will improve comprehension & increase educational performance, opening the doors to life-long learning & the benefits of access to opportunity, so improving social mobility and economic wellbeing.
