Read­ing help for young­sters

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Although it works in more than 120 coun­tries fight­ing for the rights of chil­dren, and help­ing them to ful­fil their po­ten­tial, Save the Chil­dren also has a UK pro­grammes team, de­liv­er­ing early in­ter­ven­tion pro­grammes in the Kent area.

The char­ity’s Born to Read pro­gramme places read­ing vol­un­teers in pri­mary schools to sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of lit­er­acy with chil­dren who have fallen be­hind.

Now Save the Chil­dren needs more vol­un­teers to help de­liver this pro­gramme. Vol­un­teers need to com­mit to vis­it­ing a lo­cal pri­mary school twice a week for 90 min­utes per visit (30 min­utes with three chil­dren) and be avail­able to cover three school terms.
