Challenges with literacy can have a significant impact on the quality of a child’s life.
We’re on a mission to change that. Here’s how…

Sustainable, scalable solutions

Our work has a measurable impact on the children we support and is scalable.

Partnerships with communities & schools

We work on the ground with local communities, using their local knowledge to maximise impact.

Focus on children most in need of support

We identify the communities in need of support and work with local teachers to identify children who need us the most.

of children who read poorly at age 9 will struggle to read for the rest of their lives. Let’s change that.


Our volunteers provide one-to-one literacy mentoring to children in disadvantaged schools in Ireland.


Since 2003, we’ve directly supported over 12,000 children in India, Kenya and Zambia. We’ve trained over 1,100 Suas volunteers to work as teaching assistants in some of the world’s most marginalised, under-resourced communities.
