Bring Digital Education to South Africa

In South Africa, 78% of Grade 4 learners are functionally illiterate. Read to Rise is a non-profit organisation that promotes youth literacy in under-resourced communities in South Africa. They hope to inspire children to read through their fun, interactive class programmes and by giving children books to own. Established in 2013, to date the organisation has conducted over 5,100 class programmes and given out over 226,000 new story books.

Mitchells Plain Primary School is situated in Mitchells Plain which is a township in Western Cape, South Africa.

The project will provide 100 learners at Mitchells Plain Primary School with the mobile Read to Rise app. The app will give the children access to books so that they can further improve their reading and comprehension skills while at home.

100 learners at Mitchells Plain Primary School will benefit from this project. The school is located in Westridge in Mitchells Plain which is in Cape Town, South Africa.
