GIVE THE GIFT OF KNOWLEDGE (50136)
ICHOPE consistently provides tutoring programs in Iraq for students who struggle in school, especially elementary and middle school students who face difficulty in learning. Many of the students concluded this year with much better grades than before, so we are confident that our tutoring lessons had a great impact on them.
Our programs are designed not only to help students with their assignments and homework, but also to provide the foundation of reading and writing Arabic for first and second grades. One of our main goals is to teach the students to help themselves. In other words, we guide them to the point at which they become independent learners; thus, they no longer need a tutor. During the summer holidays, we will continue to offer remedial courses for students who need help to prepare them for the upcoming school year.
The staff and the families of the children share their success stories with excitement and joy! Here are the stories of Ahmad and Amal.
Ahmad is 8 years old and is in 3rd grade. When he registered with ICHope last November, he was struggling with reading and writing Arabic. After 5 months in our program, Ahmad started to read and write. His mother cried tears of joy when she was walking in the street and Ahmad was able to read the street and store signs for her.
Amal, a student in fifth grade, was having trouble understanding the school materials in math and English. She kept failing in both classes, until she attended our touring program to receive extra help. At the end of this school year, Amal passed both classes with grades above 80%! Amal’s ICHope sponsor sent her a gift for her hard work and for the effort she put in to improve her grades as much as she did!
