organizational structure

READ Educational Trust is a Section 18A Trust and is governed by a Board of Trustees. Head office is in Johannesburg and regional committees advise and guide professional staff on a daily basis.

The governance regulations are developed in line with the King IV Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa.

Materials Development and Resource Selection

This department, based at Head Office, is responsible for developing courses and learner- teacher support materials, as well as selecting the colourful and relevant books that go into classrooms. “The right book for the right child at the right time” is a guiding principle in this work.


Efficient financial and project management systems set the parameters for projects that range in scope from one school to 900.

Public Relations and Fundraising

The fundraising activities of this department include relationship building with donors, writing proposals and reporting on project successes. Activities also include researching statistics on literacy, media liaison and running the annual Readathon campaign.

National Training Centre

All of the training is co-ordinated and implemented through the training department, which oversees activities in both provincial and Head Office projects. The Training Centre is also hired out as a venue to external parties.
