Our History

While Living Through Learning was founded in 2012, the directors had been working with dreams of creating an organisation like this for ten years prior. Much has been accomplished in terms of uplifting the community around them. The comprehensive and integrated. Foundation Phase Literacy programme which has been used by over 30 000 learners has yielded increases in their literacy rate up to 80% in average scores.

Celebrating World Read Aloud Day

2 February 2022
Excited learners from Nooitgedacht Primary, located in Bishop Lavis were surprised with their very own copies and a fun day of out-loud reading of the new children’s book “Yola and the Trusted Crown” to celebrate World Read Aloud Day.

Living Through Learning is proud of the instrumental role that we played in making the books available to communities in need, as well as helping with distribution to celebrate the magic of reading aloud and help children fall in love with reading.
