The Link Literacy Programme


Grade 2 and 3 are crucial in the development of literacy and maths skills.  The foundation work done at this stage is the basis for work done in higher grades and if children miss out or slip through the system without establishing these skills they will continue to battle throughout their school life.

The Link is a Non Profit Organisation in Johannesburg which supports the development of literacy and numeracy in children for whom English is a second language, and who attend low income schools in Johannesburg. The organisation was founded in 2010 by Margi Bashall, a teacher, who was inspired by The Shine Centre in Cape Town. It is managed and staffed by volunteers; members of the community who are committed to making a difference in Education.  There are several Link centers around Johannesburg – find one near you and offer 3 hours once or twice a week.
