Early Literacy Packs – Help to teach a child to read.
Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty in the long term. Just 6 months of learning can transform a child’s life.
This September, help us make quality education accessible by distributing Early Literacy Packs straight to the homes of the foundation-phase learners we work with.
The national lockdown to stem the spread of the Coronavirus saw many children in our communities staying at home without access to learning resources, putting them at risk of falling behind in their educational and cognitive development.
A donation of R200 will fund the materials needed for caregivers to educate their children for six months using CAST’s Early Literacy Programme. The pack contains reading and writing exercises, educational games, and storybooks. Once children complete this course, they will graduate to using CAST’s newly-designed curriculum to foster skills in creative arts as well as spiritual development launching in January 2021.
Donations for the literacy packs can be made via EFT and Zapper as well, or drop off any of the items listed below at the CAST Head Office:
- A5 softcover unruled exercise books
- Children’s storybooks
Since implementing this programme 5 years ago, over 2000 children experiencing learning difficulties in 11 sites have been assisted.
