OperationREAD Report

We set off wanting to teach 250 students to read as a result, 250 students from five schools have been enrolled in the project.

 

During the course of implementation, the challenges of teaching children at different stages of learning were apparent. To mitigate this, we introduced the use technology to help participants. This has been received with enthusiasm and progress is being made.

 

While challenges remain, we continue to receive requests to expand the project to other schools. We hope we can attract the support needed to do so.

The challenge has previously been and continues to be raising the funds needed to bring the project to completion. In light of this we are looking at other ways to attract new donors to support the project as well as encourage previous donors to support it.

Conservation Nation Report

The project was designed to help educate young people on the importance of the environment and the role individuals and communities have to play in protecting and preserving it. As part of the project, students would also plant trees at their respective schools as well as collect litter to help keep the environment clean. They would also be expected to create and run an environmental awareness campaign which would include a live phone radio program where they would engage key policy makers on environmental issues.

While more than 10 secondary and primary schools in Mongu,Western Zambia have signed up for the project, it is yet to receive donations. This has stalled project implementation.

We conitnue to seek ways to encourage potential donors to donate to this project. Without the much needed support, implementation will not be possible.

Engaging Multiple Interventions for Literacy

In April 2014, we created a new partnership with Reading Rainbow to use the app in a school environment to help children learn to read in a school. We are excited about this new development as it allows us to try multiple interventions to help children learn to read. This is important given the differences in learning styles and needs among children.

Given the success of the project so far, we have been asked by school district officials to consider expanding the project to the rest of the school district. A total of 105 schools. While it would be a great opportunity to scale up the project the funding needed to do is not available and so many children who would otherwise benefit from the project will not be able to.

While we continue to make strides challenges remain in terms of providing adequate suspport due to lack of funding which has in turn negatively impacted implementation. Without additional funding from donors the project risks premature closure and we wish to encourage donors to consider supporting the project with a financial donation. An additional 15,000 dollars is required to successfuly implement the project.
