Every step you take will help change a child’s life story
Did you know… 1 in 4 children leave primary school unable to read well? This already troubling statistic worsens when related to disadvantaged children. The inability to read when starting secondary school can lead to lifelong consequences, such as fewer options for further education, less qualifications, a higher chance of unemployment, poorer physical and mental health, substandard housing and lower life expectancy.
Schoolreaders places volunteers in local primary schools providing one-to-one weekly reading support, so every child has the chance to catch up on vital reading skills.
We are asking you to run, cycle, swim, scooter or even walk your dog and raise some sponsorship. Every little bit helps to give children a brighter future!
Join in, and together we will journey around the globe in 80 days and make a world of difference to children’s literacy and life-chances.
