Reaching the Unreachable

Providing Educational Assistance to Kenyan Children

The Bouncing Ball Trust provides Compassionate and Feeding Programmes for poor children in Kenya, enabling them to receive a primary education that would otherwise be denied to them. These children often come from families who are struggling to feed and clothe them never mind sending them to school.

“We are delighted to partner with Teach a friend to read campaign to deliver one to one Reading Programmes to the rural communities in the Kajiado County, Kenya.

The one to one Reading Programmes will make a real difference to the lives of Kenyans and will empower them to better their own and their communities lives"

Chris Orman, Founder and Trustee of The Bouncing Ball Trust

The Jungle Books Library staff in Calais are thrilled to receive our coach-book.

"This is exactly what we have been waiting for" says a delighted  Mary Jones.

The Jungle Library came into being in August 2015, though British teacher and founder Mary Jones has been delivering books to the camp for years.

The Library provides books and practical help and support for people in the Calais camp - many of whom are well educated and want books that will help them read and write English, apply for jobs, and fill-in forms.

We CAN Read in Gosport and Fareham Towns. This community action group aims to wipe out illiteracy in their town. They fund raise to give Readers out for free to people who teach their friends and relatives to read and write.

We are hoping that other extraordinary, inspiring groups will follow suit in their communities.
