Reading Revival supports Shine




Reading Revival is proud to announce that it is supporting the charity Shine with its reading toolkit. Shine is an educational charity working in Zambia to help tackle illiteracy in poverty-stricken areas.

Shine is running a free literacy school in Zambia which is teaching orphans and vulnerable children how to read and write. The school, Shine Zambia Reading Academy, is giving the gift of literacy to 150 children living in a poor urban township on the outskirts of the Zambian capital, Lusaka. These children would otherwise be out of education.  Their work is so successful that they are now planning to build four further classrooms so that they can accommodate 250 children.

Reading Revival has partnered with the charity by providing them with their Reading Revival toolkit, and it has pledged to donate a free toolkit for every 10 bought from their website where the Shine Academy is mentioned in the buying instructions.

“We are delighted to be helping this fantastic charity,” said Emma Plackett, the Director of Reading Revival. “Shine is doing a terrific job to raise the crucial literacy skills of this community and we want to donate our toolkits as another method that the teachers can use to help every child learn to love reading.”
