Following the recommendations of two American professors who visited the program last fall, The Sharing Foundation has made significant improvements to the English Language program. These include hiring seven more qualified new teachers and investing in their ongoing professional development, and "weeding out" students who were in the program for social rather than educational purposes. Feedback from both students and teachers is very positive! Read more about the changes and see a photo of the teachers on page 4 in TSF's Winter 2007 newsletter at the link below. Support from project sponsors continues to make a very real difference in the life prospects of these students. Thank you!
The Sharing Foundation's January 2007 update, provided in the attached word document, features profiles of two Khmer Literacy School students. Pictures of the students have been posted in the photo gallery.
In addition, for those interested, an article written by the American professors who trained teachers in TSF's English Language program last fall is included in TSF's Winter 2006 newsletter on page 3.
