THE POWER OF INTERVENTION TUTORING PROGRAMS.
Learning couldn't meaningfully read or write my name by the age of seven. I had low self-esteem, was frustrated, and hated learning.” Trishilla Nabumba, a former village school girl. After going through our intervention tutoring program, Trishilla’s reading skills, confidence, love for learning, and overall academic performance improved by 80%. She is currently among the top students in her class in her new dream school.
1. Over 70% of 8-year-olds cannot read or comprehend a simple sentence. Let that sink in for a second. Furthermore, 54% of all children in Sub-Saharan are illiterate. The statistics are likely to increase post-COVID. 2. This is because the School systems are not well designed to address the needs of students. Teachers often use a prescribed curriculum which frequently disfavors students who are not yet at that learning level, and they fall further behind.3 Children who miss key concepts in the early grades often never have a chance to catch up, no matter how many years they spend in school.
Solution. Teaching at the Right Level tailors instruction to the child's learning level, rather than their age. The result is that students achieve basic literacy and numeracy before they finish primary school.
Since learning at school hardly makes sense for millions of school-going children, especially those from low-income or very poor backgrounds, we fill that gap using intervention tutoring programs. To have more success stories like Trishilla’s, a nonprofit Pendo Education Foundation is being set up to utilize sponsorships to help less privileged children access tutoring intervention programs using the Pendo Learning Box, -a structured literacy kit with instructional guides, and learning resources,- alongside paid volunteering tutors, and instructors within partnering low income under-resourced private schools, Non-Governmental, and Faith-based organizations (NGOs).
These targeted partnering NGOs focus on enrolling and providing in and out-of-school intervention learning camps inform of, weekly, weekend, and holiday tutoring camps to 5-12- year-old children from the most underprivileged and extremely poor families in slums, juvenile centers, orphanages, and low-quality private lower primary schools, within Entebbe, Kampala, Wakiso, Mukono, Mpigi, Katwe, Nsambya, Namuwongo, and Kawempe.
Since research has proved that the effects of reading tutoring programs tend to be most robust and relatively more effective among students in earlier grades, in preschool through first grade, we will first focus on running literacy intervention camps for lower primary kids and add numeracy and upper grades later on.
We need at least 6320 subscribers to sponsor at least ten children before the end of January next year. Your support is instrumental in helping us make this happen. Get your virtual ticket for only $3 and tell your friends too! Companies can get a link to gift their employees for only $50. Thank you so much for your attention and participation.
