An alarming number of students in schools are illiterate.
We want to solve this.
As school teachers ourselves, we found that many students struggle and cannot cope in school due to low levels of literacy. Illiteracy is a root cause behind why many students fall behind, as well as for disciplinary issues, absenteeism and drop-outs.
When we first started trying to solve this problem, a solution was not clear. There were no available literacy resources that were effective, easily affordable and available to help our students.
