On the 26th of September 2019, I Can Read was awarded as an “Honouree” by Brands for Good, under Community – Social Giving and Engagement.
This award was presented to us in recognition of our Corporate Social Responsibility programme, I Can Read with JOY. The programme has provided more than 200 children from financially-disadvantaged families with free I Can Read classes, empowering them with the skills needed to read fluently and independently in preparation for primary school.
Mr Tan Aik Ping, Executive Director of I Can Read says, "We believe that any organised community, business or corporation plays an important part, however small, in contributing to the betterment of the society."
We are elated to have received this award and continue to work towards our goal of sponsoring 300 children by the year 2020.

2019年9月26日，I CAN READ被授予“社会社区奉献荣誉奖”。
该奖项是为了表彰我们制定的“I Can Read with JOY”的企业社会责任计划项目。我们的这个项目为200多名来自贫困家庭的儿童提供免费的“I CAN READ”课程，让他们在上小学前可以获得流利、独立阅读所需的技能。
