About Real Action
By purchasing tickets for this event; you’ll be helping Real Action, an educational charity, empower local disadvantaged children – by teaching them to master literacy.
Real Action uses a wonderful method at its three Butterfly Saturday Reading Schools. Hundreds of local children, from nearby housing estates and social housing, flock to these popular schools by word of mouth. And they do wonderfully: their average reading age advance is 12 months in an average 20 hours’ Butterfly teaching. Studies also suggest that they evade street life. Universities beckon.
These Butterfly Saturday schools provide a model for literacy teaching that Real Action is working to replicate elsewhere to empower ever more children.
Educational disadvantage is not to be their destiny. Support Real Action, and you will support the success of hundreds of Butterfly children.
