Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Text "REAC97 £10" to 70070

Did you know that:

·         1 in 4 children leaves primary school unable to read and write properly?

·         At many secondary schools more than half of the children who arrive are dysfunctional readers?

·         1 in 6 school leavers never enter employment, further education or training?

As an educational charity, Real Action has taught over 3,000 children to read since 1999 (with the Butterfly method we enable an average improvement of 1 year's reading age in an average 20 hours' teaching). Nearly 200 adults attend our English Express language classes each day. Step by step, with your support, we will help every child, teenager, and adult  we work with achieve their educational potential and head for a bright future!

Leading up to International Literacy Day, 8th September, we are aiming to raise £5,000 to help support our charitable work for disadvantaged children and communities.

Your support is really appreciated! Spread the word and help us reach (or break) the target!

Thank you!
