Save the Children’s Literacy Boost programme runs in 24 different countries. It aims to boost children’s confidence, extend their vocabulary and create opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. It is estimated that 250 million children between the age of five and 12 cannot read, write or count.
That’s a third of all primary school aged children. For many, that means they will remain trapped in a life of poverty and hardship.
Save the Children wants to change that. For children like Muneeba and Najma, a good education can mean a brighter future.
