Story Jungle has been the key sponsor of REACH since its inception. Race for Education Accessibilities for Every Child (REACH) was incorporated on 9 February 2012. Story Jungle and REACH work under the same belief that the ability to read and the cultivation of a reading habit are among the most effective and sustainable means for opening doors to better academic and overall life-long development for children in underserved communities.
Story Jungle designs a range of reading programmes for students and teachers to spread an effective and sustainable reading culture within schools with a high concentration of students from underserved families. Our student programmes include “The REACH Storytelling Programme”, a high-interest based school-wide reading programme to ignite a love for books and English reading, as well as “The REACH Reading Ambassador” which includes a specialised curriculum that meticulously helps students improve their English and reading skills.
For teachers’ programmes, Story Jungle designs a reading curriculum for teachers to use in-class to more effectively teach reading comprehension strategies and school-based reading materials. To ensure our curriculum is effective, Story Jungle and REACH conduct training workshops and discussion sessions with schools’ English teams throughout the school year.
