DID YOU KNOW…… that reading aloud 15 minutes every day enhances a child’s reading confidence and fluency?
For 4 years now Kesho has been running a reading programme in 4 public schools in Kilifi. We encourage children to read for meaning and we walk the journey with them right from pre-reading stage to transitioning to competent readers. To increase our contact time with children we decided to open our Resource Center on Saturdays. This is not only for our sponsored children but also for their peers and other children who can easily access our Resource Center.
We have been able to host 150 children so far. These children get a chance to read their favorite stories, hold group discussions on various topics, write essays, socialize and play with peers from different schools. We also hold a closing assemblies were all the children get a chance to introduce themselves and give us feedback on the activities of the day. Discussions on life skills take place and children engage in talent exploration activities too.
If interested in volunteering your time on Saturdays to come help us in monitoring children, or contributing towards purchasing of snacks or donating of educational materials, toys, games or even clothing you are highly welcome.
