The African Kids Reading Club aims to make sure African kids are getting the help they need with their reading and homework, have fun and enjoy learning in a family setting environment. This program is focusing on pre-school and primary school children (aged of 4-12 yrs). The program is targeting African families living in the Housing Estates in Fitzroy and Collingwood. Educational support for pre-school children is done in partnership with Save the Children. We have a number of fantastic volunteers who support the kids’ learning and we would welcome more help.
The Reading Club runs on Tuesdays and Fridays from 3.30pm to 5pm in Fitzroy.
