Empowering students through literacy
As a result of the pandemic, super-typhoon, and an under-resourced public school system, many children are illiterate or unable to read at an adequate level.
The social, emotional, and long-term financial impacts of illiteracy are immense.
The READ Program aims to improve literacy in our community through intensive, small-group reading tutorials.
The Program is delivered by qualified teachers and runs as an 8-week Summer School and an ongoing after-school program during semester. Students are taught to read starting with basic letter identification, simple word reading; and ending with reading comprehension.
The program promotes learning how to read in a fun, social, and interactive environment using methods that maximize their learning experience.
So far, we have taught more than 300 children how to read.
