• Our Program

    7 of every 10 can not read and comprehend an English story. This is partly why only 3 of every 10 children who start primary one (P.1) sit for their Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE). In a country where, 52% of our population is children below the age of 15, and mostly in primary school, this is a big challenge and an actual threat to national security and development.

     

    Our program runs all year round starting with head teacher meetings and teacher trainings followed by a series of reading activities and the National DEAR Day. Children read on as they prepare for the Spelling Bees starting in their classrooms, at school level, district/regional and National level.

    Teacher Trainings

    We believe that teachers are the most powerful people in the world, and we know that the success of our children is directly tagged to the effectiveness of the teachers. We have designed a teacher training program that focusses on equipping the teacher to be effective.

    DEAR Day – Reading Initiatives

    D.E.A.R stands for Drop Everything And Read. DEAR Day is a designated day for everyone to stop and read for at least 20 minutes in an effort to promote a reading culture and a love of reading on a national scale. As a build up for the next DEAR Day, we have launched a campaign to get 1 Million Books to 1 Million Kids - #1MBooksto1Mkids.

    Spelling Bees

    The Spelling Bee is an annual spelling competition for primary school children with the aim of improving literacy, unlocking the children’s imagination and developing 21st century skills such as Communication, Collaboration and Critical thinking.

    ***Spelling Bee participants improve their test scores and improve their confidence and participation in class***
