lldephonse is leading a reading revolution in Rwanda.
We first met him when we organised two weeks of training for him through our Let’s Read programme. That was three years ago – and he's still running the reading club in their village today!
Reading Club Hero: Ildephonse
After he started training, he immediately saw the hurdles there were to learning and took note of the challenges. When it was raining or too hot, it really rained and it was really hot, making it too difficult for the children to read or learn outside.
So he decided to do something about it.
Ildephonse built an annex on to the side of his house, by himself, all so that children would always have somewhere to read. And now they do.
