We envision a world where children are happy, productive and free;
Happy in who they are;
Productive in shaping their families and communities;
Free to explore the world, curious and uninhibited.
Let’s build this world together.
Brick by brick.
Since English is a major international language, the ability to read fluently in English is a life skill that is crucial to academic success and to participate in the global arena. However, for several reasons, Indian children are trailing behind in their ability to read and comprehend English and we can no longer ignore the research. A child who doesn’t read at grade level expectancy by class 4 will never catch up!
It is our goal to change this even for children in non English environments. We want to make learning to read a conscious design of curriculum. The focus is on enabling the skill to make reading easy and also on developing the will to make reading enjoyable. As the window for this intervention is from age 3 to age 9, we integrate this program with the early school curriculum. Besides providing this to schools, we also equip the parents to support this growth in their children.
