SNP is proud to support Shine. Shine are a UK-registered charity tackling illiteracy among the poorest, most vulnerable children in Africa. Shine’s vision is of an Africa in which every child can read and write. Their mission is to help alleviate poverty in Zambia by tackling one of its underlying causes – illiteracy – among children in its poorest parts. They are achieving this through a free literacy school for orphans and vulnerable children in a poverty-stricken shanty town in Lusaka
Shine’s ambition is to ignite a culture of reading and to instil a love of books, both in the school and in the wider community. The school library was set up with this in mind and is the only decent library for miles around. It provides a valuable resource for the children at the school and the local community. The Shine library is stocked with around 9,000 books, all donated by well-wishers in the UK and US.
To achieve its aim, Shine has built its own school called Shine Zambia Reading Academy in the compound of Kalikiliki, Lusaka. The school has 150 pupils and 8 local teachers. It charges no fees and its focus is to teach illiterate children how to read and write. Children whose family cannot afford to send them to school or cannot find them a school place due to oversubscription. Children are enrolled between the ages of 8 and 12.
The literacy program lasts for 2-3 years and consists mainly of phonics lessons, English grammar, key word learning, storytelling and guided reading practice. When pupils complete the program and pass their final exams, they ‘graduate’ and Shine places them in nearby government schools directly in Grade 5, 6 or 7 so they can continue in formal, mainstream education.
