A few weeks ago, we heard about Jupiter, who attended CAST’s literacy programme training. CAST’s literacy programme is based on another programme called Wordworks, which was established in 2005 to support and improve early language and literacy learning among children from historically disadvantaged communities in South Africa.
CAST received book donations for Wordworks from a local book supply company called Books2You. The books were intended to go to Westville Senior Primary, but the school decided to donate them to CAST’s literacy programme instead.
This generous donation will allow children in local communities to develop their reading skills, while also developing a lifelong love of reading and education. A big thank you to Westville Senior Primary School and Books2You for their thoughtful donation!
