Volunteer at Parktown Public, Bianca Bird recently had this to say about volunteering:“I love working with the Link Literacy Project. It makes me feel proud watching the children smile with achievement after struggling to read or write, and then start to get the hang of it. It is wonderful to be able to connect and develop friendships, and inspire a love of reading with these little people. I believe it truly makes a difference to them, and gives me great fulfillment being able to help them.” ... See MoreSee Less

Many of the schools where we teach don't have libraries, and the children do not have the opportunity to take books home.This month, the volunteers at our Klopper Park literacy centre are celebrating a new mini Link library. Centre manager Melanie had this to say: “Many of our volunteers suggested that we start a library to help give the children more practice reading. At present our school works on a rotation basis so the children only attend Link on Tuesday and Thursday every second week. Mala, my Thursday assistant, kindly organised a book donation from Kathy Blume of Dunvegan Primary School. The books, many of them brand new, are easy to read and well illustrated. I have no doubt that this is going to help to develop a love for reading for many of our children. ... See MoreSee Less
