One in ten children in Ireland has serious difficulties with literacy.
In some disadvantaged schools, this rises to one in three children.
About one in four teenage boys in Ireland lacks the literacy skills to function effectively in society.
To date, we’ve helped over 3,300 children from the most disadvantaged communities in Ireland to improve their literacy skills through one-to-one mentoring and learning materials
Last year, the average rate of reading progress for the children we supported was 250%.
With your help, we believe we can reach 10,000 children in the most disadvantaged schools in Ireland over the next three years.
You can make a difference in a child’s life
Here’s how you can get involved
Volunteers are at the heart of what we do, working one-to-one with children in disadvantaged schools.
Our volunteers say there is no better feeling in the world than the sense of fulfillment that comes from seeing a child make progress.
