Summary

Over the last eight years, Acres of Mercy through its learning center has been able to provide education for an average of 160 children from very needy and unstable families each year. This project will enable us to achieve the following: 1. Purchase relevant technology to improve teaching delivery to needy children 2. Support quality children's learning by recruiting and paying quality teachers 3. Improve children's learning outcomes by accessing teaching research for improved teaching

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Misingi Bora is a learning center for 180 at risk children who cannot achieve in public schools due to lack of proper teaching to students in poverty. Teachers lack needed skills to intervene. 100% of teachers are not trained to teach children from poor backgrounds. Poverty is a hurdle. 80% of parents/guardians earn less than $2 a day. Many have low literacy, and cannot usefully help their children. 60% of the parents are single mothers or grand parents with an average 4 children per family

How will this project solve this problem?

Subsidize education to needy children, provide teacher training both at Acres of Mercy and in surrounding partner schools so they effectively intervene in these children's education; pay them a competitive salary to retain them Teach children who have reading and comprehension difficulties to read so as to improve learning outcomes; Build their self esteem so they can love learning and increase their completion rates at primary school level.

Potential Long Term Impact

Provide quality basic education to needy children and total or partial orphans enabling them to transition to other levels of education and not drop out of school. Children will have better chances to improve theirs and their children's health outcomes and life chances. In the 9 years we have served the community through education of needy children, we have witnessed several single parents settling down and focusing on raising their families, due to the support they receive at Acres of Mercy.
