READING IS FUN!
Help Us Battle against Illiteracy in the Caribbean.
Our goal is to raise literacy rates in Barbados and the Caribbean. Many children struggle academically and our literacy projects help to unleash their potential to become future leaders.. We give them a wide volunteer support network, immediate help with literacy fundamentals to combat the education fallout, to inspire their imagination and encourage innate gifts and talents. Our solutions make literacy accessible to all.
What Our Community Has to Say
Reading to, and spending time with the children at the library is something I enjoy. Volunteering with Read For Life has helped to fuel my creativity, as well as allowed me to share with children the joys of reading, learning and exercising your imagination
LISTEN TO OUR PODCAST
My experience with Read for Life reading to the children at Eagle Hall library is entirely positive. The children show up with siblings, cousins and neighbours and listen to the readings, and the older ones are happy to choose books and to read for the group as well.
