Proceeds from the opening concert for the FIFA soccer world cup went to opening literacy centres across South Africa and the continent. The high level of illiterate Africans was highlighted during the build-up to the world cup and it was decided that education was one of the best charities to support. These learning centres will be placed in communities where teaching basic literacy is a priority. These centres are not schools and are aimed at educating people of all ages and backgrounds. You can help enable people to read and write by donating money or offering any services that may assist the process.
