We have been on the GlobalGiving Platform since June of 2017. In this time we have raised over $25 000 thanks to all of you who have contributed to the project over this period.
We initially aimed to raise $5000 and each time we have nearly reached our goal we have kept increasing the target! We have now decided to start another project with the same objective of improving literacy in Africa - one child at a time.
We are grateful for all the amazing support that you have given us over the last few years pre-Covid and during the tough lockdowns that we experienced in South Africa. We hope that you will continue to support the work that we do under this new project title at the following link: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/improving-literacy-in-africa/
Not only have you helped us to teach over 1000 children to read over the last 5 years, you have also enabled us to feed hundreds of families, provide school uniforms as well as health checks to those in need.
Our next project that we are working towards and raising funds for is Holiday Budder Reader programme for 120 children that is taking place at the end of this month. The programme will mainly be run by a group of youth who have just completed their training as Phono-Graphix Reading Tutors. Whilst our focus is always on literacy, the aim is for the children to be exposed to other activities too and participate in Art, Dance and Sports activities as well as reading.
You can find out more about the programme on our Edu Fun website at https://edufunsa.co.za/index.php/special-events
