Our Work


Our aim is not to teach, but to promote interest in learning. High dropout rates in primary education are a major contributor towards illiteracy. The limited application of academia into real-life Africa, increases the opportunity cost of educating a child. The ten publications below exemplify R:Ed’s commitment to instigating attitude surrounding the importance of reading and education.
