READ EDUCATIONAL TRUST
Our importance to South Africa:
Illiteracy is one of our country’s most serious problems, stunting individual progress and South Africa’s growth. READ is dedicated to bringing about change.

Established in 1979 and funded by both local and foreign donors as well as the private sector, READ works alongside the Department of Education to implement teacher training and literacy projects in schools.
