READ EDUCATIONAL TRUST
Our importance to South Africa
Illiteracy is one of our country’s most serious problems, stunting individual progress, stunting South Africa’s growth. READ is dedicated to bringing about change.
Read Educational Trust is a South African NGO that operates broadly in the education and literacy sectors, and specifically in educator training and providing school resources.
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.
