In 1992 Michael Momoh was a child living in Peckham, South East London. His father wasn’t around and his mother was a busy single parent looking after himself and his younger sister.
Michael was attending Oliver Goldsmith Primary School when he began experiencing challenges with his learning due to dyslexia. Jane Hastings, a new resident to Peckham, learned about Michael's difficulties. She approached the school with an offer of help. Through the creation of our charity, Michael and other children at the school gained valuable support with their literacy.
In this video, Michael explains how the one-to-one support he received empowered him with the skills and the confidence to succeed.
Head teacher Reema Reid says, "The Literacy Lab is one of the most effective interventions I have ever seen in my 20 years of teaching."
