WHY EDUCATION...?

Lack of education is the root cause of poverty and a primary reason for widespread crime, begging and child slave labour.

Thatà·¨y, at Read Foundation we focus on education. We believe education is the only true long-term strategy to ensuring sustainable change.

Education works. It paves the way to successful futures, creating opportunities and triggering a positive ripple effect. By providing children with literacy, numeracy and life skills, we can end generational cycles of poverty, encouraging individuals to decide between right and wrong, whilst empowering them to improve their personal circumstances and communities.
