Who are we?
- Shine Literacy offers literacy support programmes in 77 primary schools. Our reach includes the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. We offer training to organisations such as faith-based organisations, community centres as well as to individuals who share our passion to get children reading and, in this way, address South Africa’s educational crisis. Shine Centres provide individualised support to children in Grades 2 and 3 (the Shine Literacy Hour Programme) to strengthen their English reading, writing and speaking skills. Children work with trained volunteers once or twice a week, during the school day, for at least one year.
