Our STELLAR programme (‘strengthening early language and literacy teaching in Grade R’) provides training and materials to Grade R teachers to help them develop the knowledge and skills to teach early literacy effectively. As a result of significant funding from USAID’s School Capacity and Innovation Programme, the STELLAR programme will expand rapidly over the next three years and extend its footprint to other South African provinces.
