We provide schools with volunteer reading mentors who will motivate, raise self-esteem and help each child they work with to enjoy reading. Our volunteers bring along their own box of books and games and make reading fun! They work weekly with each child they support (usually 3 children per volunteer).
We also train parent helpers already volunteering in schools, so they have the skills and understanding to be effective in supporting children they are working with. This increases the quality of support in schools overall.
The third part of our work is to provide training for parents to enable them to help their own children at home. We help them to identify the skills their children need to become successful readers. We give them practical ideas on how to support their children’s learning in school.
