Reading Club

Young children surronding a vlunteer

Solutions for Life Initiative-Ghana (SFLIG) is a youth focus non governmental organization which is geared toward informal transmission of knowledge, social capital and psychosocial support for youth especially young girls, the less privilege and the vulnerable in society. We help to raise their self esteem whist whilst seeking social justice and developing their role is building a sustainable and productive future. We work with three main initiative and the Mentoring initiative is one of them.

As part of measures to mentor young girls to give them a voice we have introduce the reading club for young girls in various communities where we work. Most rural girls is Ghana find it difficult to read and write English. Girls sometimes complete junior high school and they are not even able to write their names and express themselves i every day basic English. Most of these girls always dropout of school before they write their junior high school and push some of them into early marriage and high dependency on men.

Is with our quest to give these girls a voice we have started a reading club in on e community to get volunteers assist in forming other reading clubs in other communities to teach these girls how to read using creative art materials through.

Getting volunteers to contribute to this project will help raise the self esteem of such girls.

Volunteers must be creative,know and able to speak English, ability to observe kids, very loving, must be able to use the creative Art materials, must be loving and easy to be be with

Such a great program!

Thank you for sharing this description of your organization's work - it sounds like such a powerful program! You've effectively outlined the problem facing the community. Could you provide some more detail as to what specific challenge(s) your organization faces that you need to solve in order to be able to move forward with your vision? What kind of technical expertise and assistance do you need in a volunteer to help you solve this challenge? What exactly could a student volunteer do to help? Does the volunteer need to travel to Ghana to work with you or could they assist you from another location? Answering this questions will help the community find the right fit to help you.

Here is an example of how to answer these questions: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/34613

Additionally, have you posted this in the Resource Exchange already? If not, I recommend you consider doing so as there may be some people with the right expertise looking in the Resource Exchange! http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/exchange

Good luck!

That's lovely

Dear sister

I am a teacher from Myanmar and as well as from a girls' development organization. I really like your project and love the activity very much. Now I want to share a link which is recommended for the language website. I got it from a workshop by a professor from the USA and he demonstrated some interesting reading exercises from this link , I hope the girls will enjoy it. Here is the link
