To empower children, through communities, by providing structured and sustainable reading programmes.
did you know that 10% of 13-17 year old students in almost half the schools in Malaysia do not know how to read?
52.7% of Malaysian students could not meet proficiency level 2 out of 6 in the PISA Reading Test.
In the PISA Reading Test, we ranked 58 out of 64 countries.
Illiteracy is still a huge problem in Malaysia, and something needs to be done about it.
MYReaders aims to help the many illiterate students in our country learn to read in English using a structured, research-based programme. We work to empower teachers, parents and on-the-ground movers through providing:
A Comprehensive and effective literacy toolkit
Training and long term support
workshops for parents and teachers
