Daniel's Turning Around Because of You
It's another time to share the changes that are happening and the impact that you are creating here in Nguluni through your giving.
We had new enrolment of about 36 new students coming in from surrounding public school syatem. These were students who had been mostly repeating classes because of low academic achievement brought about for the simple reason that they did not know how to read and understand. They have also had discipline challenges in their former schools . We have now placed them in our reading program where they are being taught how to read and at the same time being counselled.
So we are seeing children like Daniel who came in February not knowing how to read, write well and had discipline problems in class and a chronic truant settling in to become a better student. 30 days into the program, he is reading simple sentences, he has not missed school once and he is happier. "He has changed," remarked his parent during one visit to see Daniel's class teacher.
The teachers are encouraged by the progress and are more motivated. We hope to keep their motivation up by more training and mentoring to help children like Daniel.
But all of this work is because of the partnership that we are having and the giving recurring and one time gifts that is making the impact possible. Thank you very much, on behalf of the children, their parents and the teachers.I also want to thank you on my own behalf and the Board of Acres of Mercy- I celebrate you.
And this May, 13th we have an opportunity to make available more resources to these children and their teachers. GlobalGiving will be matching every donation made and I am asking you to consider taking part. It is a great time to have us double the impact we are having.
Your giving is changing the world, one child at a time. That is real. Thank you...
