Happy Readers provides an excellent schools-based reading initiative.
Happy Readers Projects provides an excellent schools-based initiative and can be implemented in individual schools or clusters of schools and scaled to almost any size. Happy Readers provides all you need to learn to read – books, teacher training and class resources.
Happy Readers provides a results-orientated program with measurable outcomes.
A Happy Readers Project consists of Happy Readers books, Class and Teachers Resources supported with our teacher training workshop and Happy Readers Monitoring and Evaluation enabling us to provide a full report with individual gender child tracking if required.
How many books?
How many children?
How many classes?
How many schools?
How many districts?
How much will it cost, how do we best implement and who are we liaising with through Ministry and Schools?
Happy Readers training workshop for teachers and handover of books.
This also provides a great opportunity for donors to be involved.
Progress is monitored over the year through the use of the Progress Sheets and data is returned to Happy Readers for evaluation. This enables us to spot any shortcomings, pinpoint any issues and resolve them.
Happy Readers analyse all data and provide a full report including costings, receipts, photos, handovers, Progress Sheets, Teacher and School comments and of course, a Literacy Ladder detailing progress made.
It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations–something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.
Literacy arouses hopes, not only in society as a whole but also in the individual who is striving for fulfilment, happiness and personal benefit by learning how to read and write. Literacy… means far more than learning how to read and write… The aim is to transmit… knowledge and promote social participation.
