In these unprecedented times, one can feel a little overwhelmed in terms of what you can do to help.
One of the areas that I am focused on is ensuring that children have the opportunity to learn to read (in their mother tongue) while they don’t have the opportunity to attend school.
The single easiest thing you can do is letting parents know about Curious Learning, which is a global non-profit dedicated to providing free, open source, high quality literacy learning apps for children to use on their parents’ smartphones. This proven approach is available in all 11 official South Africa languages, helping children between 3-8 years old learn to read.
Just sending out the following tweet/social media post will be incredibly helpful:
