Reading & Literacy

Libraries installed in village schools are bringing to life a passion for reading and the chance to encounter the love of Jesus. Libraries and community reading time offer a safe space for children and their families to practice reading and independently learn about their loving Savior. By combining reading lessons with the message of the gospel, this program is giving children the chance at a better life here on earth through improved literacy.

How it works

Partner with teachers 
For students to receive the best education possible they need teachers who not only have access to adequate curricula but also understand the best ways to teach it. Visiting volunteers bring training to teachers in rural Indonesia to ensure that the children have the best possible chance at learning reading, math, and science skills. 

Partner with schools
It isn't enough to simply bring better training to the teachers in rural Indonesia. By partnering with schools we are able to assess their specific needs and supply them with appropriate materials so their students can be successful during the school year. When students have access to quality lessons taught by well-trained teachers they have will more opportunities available to them in the future.
