Literacy Project to empower caregivers of pre-school children
Project Literacy has launched its five-year review of work done in literacy, reading and book space.
Having run for 47 years, the literacy nonprofit organisation (NPO) is now looking into what can be done in the next 10 years.
The NPO has a programme called "Run Home to Read" which empowers caregivers with families who have pre-school children who are not attending creches.
