Four Blind Mice Studio was born in the 90’s, when an urgent need in the market for a computer based reading program was identified. The program was to help teachers and parents solve the ever increasing problems that are associated with learners reading (understanding as well as comprehension).
Starting from humble beginnings, Four Blind Mice Studio was formed at the end of 1999 to address this need.
Then in 2000, after much research and development, it was decided to take the plunge into the market. The computer based program, Readers are Leaders, was conceived.
Four Blind Mice Studio has grown from a staff of 3 to a company occupying offices in Durban and Cape Town. There are representatives’ in Gauteng, Bloemfontein and Namibia and the company is still continuously growing steadily and moving into the future.
There are over 500 schools in South Africa that make use of the Readers are Leaders software. The international school market in Ghana, New Zeland, Namibia and The United Kingdom has also been breached.
In 2015, Four Blind Mice Studio became Pty Ltd, under new ownership, which brought with it many new ideas and concepts.
Four Blind Mice Studio has a passion that won’t stop and will continue to grow and develop increasingly more competitive and exciting educational software for South Africa, as well as the world.
The secret of the company’s phenomenal growth is the urgency and demand to improve the education system, to help create the future leaders of the world.
Over the years, Four Blind Mice Studio has experienced many challenging times, but passion and persistence has gotten the company to where it is today; Already being the best at what it does and becoming a leading educational company in South Africa.
With sponsors such as Anglo Gold, Caltex, The City of Tswane Municipal Libraries, The Khanya Project, The Free State Department of Education and the Telkom Foundation, Readers are Leaders has already reached so many previously disadvantaged schools and FBMS looks forward to working with many more wonderful foundations and sponsors.
