Reading and English Grade 3 Programme
The programme is co-ordinated by, Pippa Ford, an experienced professional and 80 trained volunteers from VolunteerSA. The Grade 3 isiXhosa-speaking children in Kwanokuthula benefit from this Reading initiative by strengthening their reading, comprehension and language skills and preparing them for the transition from isiXhosa to English as the language of learning and teaching in Grade 4.

Ready Steady Read Write – Wordworks
We have partnered with Wordworks, a Cape Town-based NGO, who supports early language and literacy development of children from previously disadvantaged communities in South Africa. The first Ready Steady Read Write site was piloted at Kranshoek Primary, in 2018. for Afrikaans Home Language learners. The programme provides Grade R and Grade 1 learners with the support they need to read and write successfully.
Trained tutors from the community volunteer their time enriching vocabulary by working with pairs of learners on a weekly basis. In 2019 a new site was established at the Harkeville Primary School. Donate your time
