Can you imagine learning to read without a book?
Basotho children are taught in Sesotho and English with often very few resources except a blackboard and chalk. Throughout their education they are thrown in the deep end through language immersion with no support for learners with additional needs. Teachers and learners are limited on an imaginable level by such a lack of resources and training.
Lesotho Literacy Leap works hand in hand with the new Integrated Primary School Curriculum in Lesotho by providing books and training workshops to primary school teachers. We support the new thematic curriculum content by providing level appropriate reading schemes, story books and non-fiction picture books. We run workshops on Phonics, reading and writing strategies and assessment for learning all aiming to raise the confidence and independence of teachers and learners.
