Let’s help these children REACH the starting line
Who We Are
REACH is an education charity run by educators. We seek to make sustainable impacts by executing long-term English programmes to improve English proficiencies and instill a love of reading among underserved kindergarten and primary school students.
“It is not true that ‘we have only one life to live’; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.”
― S.I. Hayakawa
What Challenges we are tackling
Reading is a very complex and technical skill set. A highly systematic and explicit approach is required to equip students with the necessary reading and listening skills.
How did it all begin
REACH started its pilot REACH Reading Club programme with Lok Sin Tong Primary School in May 2014. Situated in Kowloon City, Lok Sin Tong Primary School was founded in 1949 by The Lok Sin Tong Benevolent Society, a charity group. For over 50 years, the school has maintained a reputation for education excellence. Its diverse student population has a high concentration of students matching REACH’s target students, e.g. those from families receiving social benefits or education subsidies from the government, and those who are new immigrants from China and Southeast Asia.
