PrintWordworks was established in 2005 to support and improve early language and literacy learning among children from historically disadvantaged communities in South Africa. The organisation has been built around the belief that education is the key to transforming the life chances of children in South Africa, and that to succeed at school, all children must have the right foundations in place to learn to read and write. Wordworks places the contribution of communities and families at the centre of their approach, and seeks to raise the status of their crucial role in educating young children.
