If you can read and write well, it is easier to actively participate in daily life. In Europe, 70 million people experience great difficulty with reading and writing. Low literacy is often passed on from generation to generation. Growing up in a family where little is spoken and read (aloud), the chance of low literacy increases considerably. HEMA Foundation wants to break this vicious circle with an effective family approach for families with children aged 0 – 4 years.

There are various tools to prevent kids from future low literacy. A couple of them are: read aloud, read rhythms, visual connections, problem solving, using sans serif fonts and rewarding. We processed these tools in HEMA’s chocolate letters, which are the most common threats and gifts sold around the famous Dutch holiday Sint Nicolas. We help preventing kids from low literacy, and they probably won’t even mind it.
