Over the last eight years, Acres of Mercy through its learning center has provided education to an average of 200 children from poverty each year. This project supports teachers and their work . It will provide the technology to improve teaching delivery and planning to children in need , provide quality people by recruiting, remunerating and retain excellent staff, improve children's learning outcomes by facilitating student assessments and feedback and provide quality textbooks to children.
Many children from poverty have history of poor achievement in school. Many have been in school but haven't been learning. Public schools are under resourced and overpopulated.100% of public school teachers lack the support and training to reach and teach children from poverty. 80% of parents/guardians earning less than $2 a day have neither the time nor resources to intervene. Students face the risk of getting stuck in an endless cycle of poverty without intervention.
Provide teacher support and care in a way that delivers quality education at a low cost to needy children and their families; We will do this by paying teachers a competitive salary ; provide a conducive working environment and opportunities to grow in the teaching profession; provide sufficient resources to help in the work of teaching; provide mentoring, coaching and training opportunities so teachers can fully focus on delivering needed interventions to children from poverty/ in need.
Provide quality education to children in need. Enabling them to transition to other levels of education, stemming high drop out rates. Children will have better chances by getting into high school, having successful careers and positively contributing to the growth of the economy. Quality education will provide opportunities for being employed, creating employment; succeeding in building communities that are more socially cohesive, economically vibrant and more responsive in solving its problems
