An organisation which sends free subscription book parcels to children in poverty hopes to make a ‘profound’ difference in youngsters’ lives.
Dee-Dee Crosher set up Pathenaeum two years ago and the project is now asking for professionals working with disadvantaged kids to nominate worthy recipients of free reading material.
While investigating how to help children in poverty, she discovered how hard it is for those in need to get hold of children’s resources.
Pathenaeum is aimed at giving all UK children easy access to educational resources, and the service can be free to those in poverty.
In total, 50% of Pathenaeum’s profits go to providing the free subscription boxes for schools and children.
Ms Crosher said: “If one disadvantaged child in a classroom gets access to the best learning resources at home the impact of the benefits the child receives will be felt across the entire classroom.
