Last year, we took a long, hard look at the state of illiteracy in South Africa. By now, you may be well aware of the statistics and their implications, but what you may not know is what is being done by initiatives and organisations that, like ourselves, are working every day to solve the literacy crisis.
When this learner started on the program her biggest challenge was that she was French speaking. The teacher put her on the program because she could not read or spell in English and was reading at a very low grade level.
Shehaam has been an active participant at the help2read programme at Strandfontein Primary for the past four years (that’s over 250 hours of volunteering!).
