Almost one in five children left primary school last year having failed to reach the expected level in their English Standard Attainment Test.
Illiteracy can be a life sentence; not being able to read and write well can lead to unemployment and disengagement with society. For some, it can lead to anti-social behaviour and crime.
VRH works to help primary school children who are at risk of falling behind with their reading. We believe in early intervention to give children a brighter future. Our model is simple and it works; last year 96% of the children we helped saw an improvement in their reading confidence.
We can help a child become confident and literate for life for less than £1 per day over a year. To find out more and help us raise vital funds, please read on.
