When Prince Massaquoi, 8, first arrived at the library he was not efficient in pronouncing variety of words and had difficulty in reading entire sentences. His vocabulary was on the lower side as he was not able to answer many of the comprehension questions that accompany the books. After three months at the Street Library Prince’s reading and comprehension levels has improved and he now enjoys reading and having great discussions with higher level books. Prince has improved so much that both his mother and teachers at school have noticed the big difference. His mother says “when he comes home from school if he is not at the Street Library then he is at home reading stories. I see a good change with his reading and with his moral attitude.”
With support from individuals and partners was a great stimulus to our goal because they helped us to many underprivileged kids though our Street Library program. Our beneficiaries are excited learning new skills and meeting their peers on a daily basis. Our volunteers feel motivated to teach because of the availability of sufficient learning materials and resources.
