Read for Africa works very closely with Edu Fun, an NPO that operates in Diepsloot and other under resourced communities and focuses on teaching English Literacy to Grade 2 and 3 learners using the Phono-Graphix Reading method.  

As a supporter of Read for Africa and/or a practitioner of Phono-Graphix, please support the work that we do in Diepsloot, by other becoming a regular buddy reader at one of our Buddy Reader sites or by assisting us with other projects such as the Food Pantry, Uniform, Health Screening or Baby Club. 

Some projects take place on a daily / weekly basis during term time, but our focus is turning to the winter holidays where we will be running a 3-day Holiday Buddy Reader programme from Wednesday 29 June to Friday 1 July 2022. 


Ways in which you can help

  • Volunteer on one or all of the days - Buddy Read with a Grade 2 or 3 learner and teach a few basic literacy skills to help learner access 3 and 4 sound words. (No experience is required as there will be daily on-site briefings, videos to view beforehand)
  • Sponsor a learner to attend the Holiday Programme at R300 / learner which will cover all the activities, snacks and treats that the learner will receive daily. 
  • Help us reduce costs by adding one or 2 items from our "wish list" to your next shop.
