Illiteracy

Dear Friends 

We can and will  stamp out illiteracy.  We are proud to be part and support the not for profit Teach a Friend to Read Campaign in partnership with the Dyslexia Foundation.  One in 5 of the UK and USA population has trouble with reading.  Anybody that can read can teach one that cannot.  As simple as that.  This coach-book with simple instructions shows you how. 

Buy a copy or you can donate below for us to send free books to care homes and orphanages in the UK and abroad. Make a difference http://teachafriendtoread.com/

Where there is a will there is a way.  We applaud everybody (The Reading Agency, BookTrust, National Literacy Trust)  who wants to help a non reader how to read and write. We can all work together to bring this ‘intellectual cancer’ to extinction.  Thank you for your support!

 Tatiana Wilson, Founder – The People’s Book Prize

 

Please sponsor a winner and share your passion for reading and the determination to improve somebody’s quality of life:   YOU can make that happen for one person.   He or she will keep in touch with his/her progress and it will be a rewarding experience to know that you have been able to make a difference.   

Thank you.  

All the best.   Tatiana
