Did you know that 53% of Malaysian students could not meet the minimum proficiency level in international reading tests?
In the PISA Reading Test, we ranked 58 out of 64 countries.
Illiteracy is still a huge problem in Malaysia, and something needs to be done about it.
MYReaders is a non-profit social enterprise that aims to help all children learn to read, regardless of their socio-economic background. Join us to help realise this dream!
WHAT WE DO
We empower children, through communities, by providing remedial literacy programmes to enable children to learn to read.
HOW WE DO IT
We provide structured and sustainable reading programmes to schools and communities, in collaboration with school leaders, teachers, community leaders, volunteers, and students.
Our literacy toolkit, one of the first homegrown English materials in the country, is tested and proven to enable students to develop their reading skills within a year. We deliver training to teachers and student mentors on early literacy development and strategies to improve reading proficiency. We also develop customised modules according to the needs of schools to grow the reading skills of their students.
Read with a student to help develop their reading skills!
The MYReaders Advanced Reading Programme is a social initiative in collaboration with the Lembah Pantai Member of Parliament’s office and KL Gateway Mall. Volunteers will read with secondary school students to help build confidence in their reading skills and instil a love of learning in them! The students come from the community around the Kerinchi PPR flats, many from less privileged backgrounds.
Join us on Monday from 8.00 pm to 9.30 pm. We will be at KL Gateway mall, in front of Times Bookstore on level 2. It is accessible via Universiti LRT. You’ll be reading with students age between 13 and 17, helping them with the assigned article and the guiding questions designed to improve their critical thinking.
