1st February is World Read Aloud Day www.litworld.org/wrad/

The day is a reminder that reading aloud to children every day puts them almost a year ahead of children for whom this is not their experience.

It is also a reminder that there are 750 million adults around the world , two thirds of whom are women,  without basic skills in reading and writing.

Our RSVP School volunteers help children acquire literacy as a basic human right.

RSVP have joined forces with the mayor of Bristol in his initiative to enhance the reading skills of children in the area..
