Illiteracy lies at the heart of crime, unemployment and poverty.

Half the prison population 

struggles with reading-

but half the prison population can read!

Lgo inside a prison cell

With the Teach a friend to read guide

end illiteracy in your prisons and community!

Our aim:

to give Teach a friend to read

to each prisoner who can read

so no-one will leave prison unable to read.


Listen to extracts of a thank you letter that was sent to Teach a friend to read by a man in prison who - during his 7 year sentence - is teaching his fellows to read and encouraging others to be reading-coaches as well.
