Can you imagine not being able to read? How different do you think your life would be?

Approximately 25% of primary school children leave school unable to read at the expected level. These children risk an uncertain future and the damaging long-term effects of poor literacy: 

  • 70% of pupils permanently excluded from school have difficulties with basic literacy
  • 25% of young offenders have reading skills below that of the average 7 year old

But it doesn't have to be this way. You can rewrite this story and ensure children like Michael have the gift of reading by donating to Beanstalk. 

  • Just £7 will provide one week's worth of literacy support
  • £30 will provide one month's worth of literacy support
  • £60 will provide an entire term's worth of literacy support

For every pound that is donated to Beanstalk, we spend 88p on our life-changing one-to-one support
