While the issue of education in South Africa remains a key factor, the access to books, an indispensable tool for literacy education – is limited, and the ratio of schools possessing a library is very small. The quality of education in the foundation years has a lasting impact and we are working hard to ensure that every child receives quality basic education. The Annual National Assessment (ANA) results recently placed literacy levels of grade 3 pupils at 35 percent.
Cedal Childrens Support has announced a new initiative to help slash illiteracy rates in South Africa.
The campaign, which has been distributing books in disadvantaged communities around Johannesburg and aims to reach around 30 000 children by the end of 2017.
Make a difference by supporting a focused education programme.
