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!
