READ to RISE promoting reading

We closed off with Athol Williams - Chairman of READ to RISE and Author of Oaky and the Sun to tell us more about his book and his Read to Rise reading initiative. Athol recently launched the Read to Rise programme that entails volunteers reading and interacting with two thousand pupils in Grade 2 and grade 3 at five different primary schools in Mitchell’s Plain. Brightly illustrated Oaky and the Sun convey a simple message about finding one’s purpose as it explains Oaky’s development from an acorn to an oak tree. The initiative hopes the reading has a ripple effect on friends and family one school at a time. They hope to reach more Mitchell’s Plain learners next year and therefore are appealing to anyone keen on sponsoring books or volunteering to read. For further information you can contact Read to Rise by sending an email to taryn@doinggreatthings.co.za
