PfP Blog Literacy programme aimed at teens and young adults to collaborate with PfP

The FunDza Literacy Trust, which aims to popularise reading, is to offer PfP high schools an unmissable opportunity to improve literacy levels through the promotion of reading for pleasure among its learners.

In a country where the abysmal literacy rates among 10 year olds has been widely publicised, the established NGO has advocated that the benefit of literacy programmes, with a specific focus on English language comprehension skills, should be extended to the teenage and young adult population – an age group in dire need of attention in this respect. The organisation firmly believes that the more young people read, the quicker they acquire mastery of language, and gain the valuable life skills taught through stories.
