About Us

We help primary school children from disadvantaged communities by helping them with their reading and writing skills

More about my Cause

Shine Literacy is a non-profit organisation that seeks to create a culture of reading in South African schools, homes, workplaces and communities, thereby improving literacy outcomes for young children from disadvantaged communities. Working in partnership with teachers, volunteers and parents, our award winning, evidence-based programmes provide effective and sustained support to children as they learn to read and write, helping to foster a life-long love of books and learning.

Shine Centres provide individualised support to children in Grades Two and Three (the Literacy Hour) to strengthen their reading, writing and speaking skills. Children work with trained volunteers once or twice a week, during the school day, for at least one year.

The Shine Literacy Hour is a carefully structured session divided into four parts – paired reading, shared reading, have-a-go writing and word play (games). The programme uses a wide range of age-appropriate storybooks and readers. In addition, 36 educational games developed specially for Shine Literacy as well as Wordworks literacy games, cover all the theoretical skills that children need to learn to read and write successfully.
