Spreading the Joy of Jolly Phonics
Jolly Futures enables government school children in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia to learn to read and write in English with Jolly Phonics.
Jolly Futures is the world’s most far-reaching and effective philanthropic literacy programme
Who We Are
We are not your usual development actors. Jolly Futures is made up of a global family of passionate philanthropists, experts, project managers, trainers, government officials and educators, who believe in the power of Jolly Phonics and are on a mission to give this gift to the worlds most underprivileged children.
What We Offer
We provide children in the world’s most challenging contexts with the opportunity to learn to read and write with Jolly Phonics - a world leading, effective, fun and multi-sensory synthetic phonics programme. We do this through the donation of materials, high quality teacher training, world-leading technology, and the provision of expert advice and support.
Projects and Impact
Jolly Futures has reached numerous countries in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. We are ambitious about scale, because millions of children are still not learning to read and write in school, but at the same time we are serious about quality and achieving results. Balancing the two is a challenge we are ready to embrace.
Large Pilot Study in KenyaOctober 26, 2021
Universal Learning Solutions is collaborating with the Anglican Churches of Kenya, Evangelical Alliance of Kenya and the African Gospel Church on a large scale Jolly Phonics pilot study across Kericho, Narok and Bomet counties in Kenya. The pilot includes 24 experimental schools and 7 control schools and will run for two terms. It is hoped that results will be used for scaling up Jolly Phonics across the country.
