Shine Literacy

The Foundation:

Shine Literacy seeks to create a culture of reading in South African schools, homes, workplaces and communities, thereby improving literacy outcomes for young children from low-income communities. Working in partnership with teachers, volunteers and parents, their award winning, evidence-based programmes provide effective and sustained support to children as they learn to read and write, helping to foster a life-long love of books and learning.

Shine Literacy’s methods and materials are based on extensive on-the-ground experience as well as the significant evidence-base around what works in supporting early language and literacy learning. Their programmes help to transform the prospects of some of South Africa’s most vulnerable children, by breaking the destructive cycle of poor literacy, low educational attainment, wasted potential and poverty.
