In 2016, TRAC N4 initially supported one Lowveld school. As a result of the success of the program, which can be attributed to the hands on approach of the staff at Penreach, we have further extended our support to two more rural schools for 2017.
We have seen that children benefit from the Asifundze (Let’s Read) Literacy Programme. This occurs both in the classroom and also at home during afternoon reading camps. Children are encouraged to attend these community reading camps, which are run by Penreach trained volunteers. The camps not only encourage reading and comprehension, but feed the children and also keep them off the street.
TRAC N4 is very proud to be part of such a positive and successful multi layered project. This goes a long way in developing skills in foundation phase children, teachers and also volunteers. Coupled with this, it simultaneously contributes to socio economic growth in our local communities.

Sage Foundation has worked with Penreach for a number of years, with the focus being on literacy and Reading Camps in Mpumulanga. I recently had the privilege of spending time at one of the reading camps and listening to the children reading with such passion and energy in English, and in their mother tongue, was refreshing. Literacy and stories come to life through amazing work that Penreach and their team of volunteers do. Thank you for the amazing work you do – we look forward to being part of this journey in the future.
