Summary

In Sierra Leone, many high school students or youths struggle with English comprehension. Their vocabulary is weak and their oral English needs improvement. In order to encourage students to focus on improving their vocabulary and oral English, we are holding reading and comprehension competitions. These competitions have helped to bring focus to the need for English proficiency.

Challenge

English is increasingly becoming a basic skill needed for the entire workforce. A lack of English proficiency can affect progress in academics and the workplace. However, the English foundation of many youths or young adults in Sierra Leone is weak, needing improvement. Both the youths themselves and the schools need to pay more attention to addressing the English language deficit.

Solution

The project will help to address the English proficiency deficit through competitions and the provision of competition incentives. Bragging rights and competition prizes are successfully encouraging both the students and the schools to focus on improving English proficiency. This project will provide the needed funds to organize the competitions and provide prizes. Through the competitions, we are helping to emphasize and encourage the need for English proficiency.

Long-Term Impact

The project is an effective long-term investment, encouraging English proficiency. It is helping to stimulate the educational development of youths. As a result, they will be better qualified and better able to make a significant contribution to the national economy.
