Voices from Inspiring Readers

22nd October 2021 | Blog

The Inspiring Readers programme begain with the aim of putting brand new, carefully selected books into the classrooms of students across Africa who often have little to no access to up to date books.

Since its pilot in 2016, the programme has reached over 290,000 children in 297 schools across the continent. Below we meet four students who now attend schools with libraries filled with new books. This was made possible thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery – thank you for your generous support that helps to reach students across Africa with the brand new books they need, we couldn’t do it without you.

I like this book because I see so many spellings!

This is my favourite book because I am learning how to grow plants.
