What is ReadCamp?
ReadCamp is an out-of-campus literacy activity project designed to enhance young students’ reading and writing skills, and to engage them in learning activities beyond the classroom.
The program was introduced so that participants will be taken through reading and writing lessons as well as tutorials on basic internet usage for research. This will equip participants to access and use information technology without difficulty, hence exposing them to unlimited opportunities to make informed choices and make meaningful contributions for the success of their families, communities and the nation at large.
The project for the past four(4) years has successfully touched the lives of over 3000 children in several communities with support from Ghana library Authority, African university collage of communication, Ghana education service among many.
