JCI Guyana Literacy Program executed in keeping with UN MDG 2 - Achieving Universal Primary Education
October 1, 2012
Children from West Ruimveldt Front Road and East Ruimvledt Trench Road Communities
The objective of this project was to assist in edifying the children from both West Ruimveldt Front Road and East Ruimveldt Trench Road which have both been identified as depressed neighbours by JCI Guyana.
The Children were able to participate in the interactive phonics and reading classes that were set up by the teachers. They were involved in Spelling Bee Competitions that saw many of them finishing as winners.
More projects like this needs to be done in other depressed areas so that the children can better their reading skills.
