Thank you once again for supporting our micro project to help 100 vulnerable children in Liberia. While we did not meet our full goal of $10,000 we will be able to accomplish a great deal in the coming months thanks to your support, including:

  • RHL will purchase books from STAR Books, a West African publishing company, located in Monrovia.
  • RHL will purchase a full set of required readers for Grades 1 through 6.
  • RHL will purchase both the supplemental and additional readers to stock the library shelves. These readers have required curricula in classrooms, however, most families are unable to afford them. Students will now have them available at the community library!

As these activities are fully implemented we will update you with post-impact reports. Additionally, we plan to continue our fundraising efforts outside of GlobalGiving to ensure this project is fully realized.

Thank you so very much for your support.  We are that much closer to achieving this goal. 

Warm Regards,

Saundra Williams, Executive Director

Thank you for donating to this project!

We are pleased to report that the tutor training for Module 1 of the phonics-based course has been completed. All the tutors and teachers from Kolahun who participated found it of great value and are eager for the next training!

All children were assessed for their reading skills prior to the start of the school year with an assessment tool from the training. They are working hard and motivated to improve their skills.

The tutors are now teaching after school at the Vocational Education & Training Center four days a week focusing specifically on reading skills. The tutors are using their new e-readers for use in the classroom, providing new reading material to students.

We are closing out the fundraising for this project as we successfully raised all the funds necessary. A big thank you to all who donated to this through Global Giving and directly through RESTORE HOPE. 

Gratefully,

Saundra Williams, MPH MIA

We are pleased to report that the training of RESTORE HOPE: LIBERIA's tutors was held the third week of August. Two trainers from Liberia Reads! traveled to Kolahun and trained RESTORE HOPE: LIBERIA's tutors as well as 15 primary grade school teachers from local schools in Kolahun District.

The training was the first of three modules in the Liberia Reads! training program. The focus of the first module was Phonological Awareness and Phonics. All participants are eager to complete all three training modules!

Included in the training was an assessment tool so that RHL tutors and participating school teachers can assess each student to determine their current reading skills. We will be doing this for each student who attends RHL's afterschool tutoring program to assess current levels, group the students accordingly, and begin focusing on phonics. 

RESTORE HOPE: LIBERIA will begin making plans for our tutors to complete the second module in collaboration with Liberia Reads!

We'll be sharing more details about the training and the progress of the children in subsequent reports.

Stay tuned!
