From one of our volunteers: "I’m so grateful for what my daughters and I have learnt through volunteering at The Link.
My domestic worker’s 6 year old is staying here with her, during lock-down, and so my daughters and I are doing alternate days with him, following the Link 45 minute reading programme. For the first 15 minutes he practices reading, then we play a literacy based game for the next 15 minutes, and in the last 15 minutes we read a story to him and let him take the book 'home' with him - he loves it- and so do we!
He will definitely NOT be one of the grade 2’s in need of extra help next year!"

During February and March, UK doctor, Adam Stern spent his free time, not holidaying, but volunteering at The Link literacy centre at Risidale Primary School He says, “I spend a few months each year in South Africa and wanted to contribute something back here. I read about the Link Literacy Project online and was taken with the systematic structure to facilitate reading that is used. My experience of the volunteering has been positive. In a short time I’ve seen the children really making progress in their reading and the tools we use bring results. It's good to be a part of."
