Challenge

The Family Literacy Initiative is a home visitation program focused on parent involvement and school readiness. The goal is to prepare 3, 4 and 5-year old children for long-term academic success and help parents become more effective at working with their children. Friends of Liberia partners with WE-CARE Foundation to oversee the program. The program empowers parents as their children's first teacher by giving them the tools, skills, and confidence they need to work with their children at home.

Solution

Children who benefit from quality, equitable, and inclusive early education are better prepared for primary school, will reach better education outcomes, are more likely not to repeat grades and have a better chance of completing high school. Using a home visitation model, a home visitor role plays with the parent. Learning occurs through the modeling and dialog between the parent and child. Group meetings focus on school involvement, community improvement, and personal development.

Long-Term Impact

FLI aims to raise the participation rate in school, get children to start school at appropriate ages, and stay in school for the long term. Parents will increase their literacy skills, have increased and sustained involvement in school and community, and stronger parent-child relationships. Participants will develop a love for learning. FLI aims to create a workforce of paraprofessionals trained in coaching parents to be involved in their children's education, as well as increase their skills.
