South Asia 1 – Multilingual Education

0.0% of $9,600 funded

This community has long been marginalised and dispossessed by mainstream society in this South Asia country. The children of this community are provided with state-run schooling that is undertaken in the state language but, unfortunately, this language is foreign to the children. This means that the children struggle to understand their teachers and this often results in them leaving school early without having completed their education. Low levels of literacy in the community are the end result.

This project seeks to establish a literacy and education program in the children’s mother tongue that will lead to increased literacy skills and improved educational outcomes. Children’s literacy skills in their local language will be improved and then the gap in their understanding of their school lessons will be bridged by providing instructions in this local language.

Adopting this approach we anticipate that school dropout rates will decline and their community has improved literacy.
