Shine Literacy is a non-profit organisation that seeks to improve literacy outcomes for young children from disadvantaged communities in South Africa. Working in partnership with teachers, volunteers and parents, our evidence-based programmes provide effective and sustained support to children as they learn to read and write, helping to foster a life-long love of books and learning.
Shine Literacy is an award-winning leader in Foundation Phase literacy innovation in South Africa. Since its inception in 2000, Shine has taken an entrepreneurial approach to tackling the country’s stubborn and unacceptably low literacy rates. Focusing on developing the reading, writing and speaking skills of Grade Two and Three children from disadvantaged communities, Shine aims to support children to engage effectively with learning by the time they finish the Foundation Phase of schooling.
