Ready Read Rise
Words: Lungisa Mnqwazi
Inspiring non-profit organisation Read to Rise is creating opportunities for children in impoverished South African communities to broaden their horizons through reading.
Author, screenwriter and television producer George R. R. Martin once said, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” When Taryn Lock and her husband Athol Williams founded Read to Rise, a non-profit organisation (NPO) that promotes youth literacy in under-resourced communities, it was to see the broader society being able to live multiple lives through reading.
