Literacy Development, explained

Our Literacy Development Initiative is dedicated to improving the lives of underprivileged children by enhancing their literacy skills, confidence, and aspirations. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of background or ability.

We offer Reading Sessions, Book Bundles and Reading Corners to schools in low-income and low-literacy areas.

Our Mentorship Programme

The Reading Corner is currently developing a mentorship programme for aspiring diverse creatives, divided into three categories: Behind the Scenes, Creative Writing and Illustration. These mentorships will provide an incredible opportunity for mentees to work one-on-one with experienced professionals in the publishing industry.


This program is designed to help foster a more diverse and inclusive publishing industry.
