soon as the initial intensive 8-day Teacher Development Course is finished, Readucate
Instructors have the licence to open their own Readucate Centre as
a small business. They teach in their garages, their lounges and sometimes classrooms
at school after hours. Children in need of remediation and adults longing for

keep their own jobs and the salaries they earn in their regular positions. However,
they remit 10% of their gross Readucate Centre as a small licence fee and
to help regenerate Trust funds. Sadly, some areas are so poverty stricken that
the Readucate Instructors sometimes provide food from their own pockets
for hungry children and adults. Thus they cannot remit their licence fee as they
have no financial income.

Instructors while still in prison. Again, they find it hard to establish themselves
in a viable way so please help us to help them by subsidising their earning while
they are trying to build up successful Readucate Centres.
