Read Easy readers speak on film

We are delighted to announce that five short films featuring adults who are being coached with Read Easy are now available. Here are the links for Amina, CJ, Donna, Peter and Sarah:


Amina –














Read Easy is really grateful to Pearson for founding and convening this global campaign and for enabling our readers to be involved.


The Project Literacy campaign launched on 12 March. This includes stories and photos from Read Easy readers, alongside other readers who have learned to read later in life from around the world. Follow the link for more information: The learning company Pearson is the Founding Partner of this exciting and important initiative.

Short films on some of the readers, including those coached by Read Easy, will be coming out shortly, so do keep an eye on their website and ours. You can also stay informed and sign up for regular updates on the campaign as it evolves by signing up for their newsletter on the home page.

Project Literacy brings together a diverse cross-section of people and organizations from all over the world. Working together, they will help to unlock the potential of individuals, families and communities everywhere with the power of words. Together, as a community of 80 partners and counting, they’re making significant and sustainable advances in literacy.

Project Literacy’s aim is that by 2030 no child will be born at risk of poor literacy.
