Today is International Literacy Day! Our English+ Program continues to support 20,000 students in India each year, improving literacy and exposure to the English language. Program “champion”, Jane Koons, regularly shares highlights from her work during travels to and from India:
• Parents and teachers exclaim, “ENGLISH+ is a gift for us. Our students are improving in English every day.”
• School admissions have increased because of the enhanced English program. Students are asking, “Teacher, when will we have the next ENGLISH+ class?”
• Keeping the libraries refreshed with new books, some bilingual, is helping the program to continue its effectiveness.
• “… the program removes the fear of learning English. Now great interest is created and they learn with pleasure and new vision.”
Happy International Literacy Day from all of us at LPGM!
