World Read Aloud Day

In some communities around the world, up to 90% of 10-year-old children struggle to read

Children are not achieving minimum proficiency levels in reading and going to school is not enough to ensure adequate education. Now, think about children living in extreme poverty, their situation is much worse. They have little to no books at home and rarely anyone who can read to them.

 

Surprisingly, even in countries like the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia, a large number of children from deprived communities struggle with basic literacy skills.

 

The literacy levels of disadvantaged children around the world are years behind their peers- a gap that keeps getting bigger the older they get.

Join us and ‘Give the Gift of Literacy’ to children this Christmas.

Christmas is known as ‘a magical’ time of the year. It is a time of giving and sharing with family and friends to celebrate but the actual reality for some people is one of great sadness. They simply cannot afford the ‘festive season.’ Families who live below the poverty line are trapped in a cycle that affects their children academically.

Why-Donate

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to develop their reading and writing skills. Literacy is the key to unlocking a child’s potential beyond their socio-economic condition, the building blocks which other skills stem from, such as numeracy and science, and is a crucial gateway to further schooling and learning.
