THE IMPORTANCE OF READING SKILLS!
Ripple Reading is a registered Non-profit Organisation which focuses on literacy and leadership development of children within disadvantaged communities. Research indicates that a lack of role models and reading skills is related to the development of aggressive antisocial behaviour later in life.
Firstly, our mission is to assist disadvantaged schools by providing Literacy Training to all the identified children who are reading below their age appropriate level. Secondly, to develop the potential of identified leaders (academic, sport and leadership abilities) in the school from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Our vision is to assist our learners in attaining a level of academic performance which will make it possible for them to take control of their futures: academically, emotionally and socially. We aim to develop students who show Academic, Sport and Leadership potential.
