The Very READ-y Project is a collaboration between two Winnipeg non-profits, Bookmates Inc. and Manidoo Gi Miini Gonaan Inc. Its goal is to address the issue of school readiness through the training and delivery of early learning and literacy programs, workshops and events. Funded by The Winnipeg Foundation, the project centres on the Point Douglas area of the city. By focusing on community strengths and capacity-building, VRP ensures that parents and community workers play key roles in supporting the learning and development of Point Douglas children!
