Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As part of its efforts to improve children’s literacy and learning outcomes, Save the Children has been assessing children’s early grades reading skills, and mobilizing community action to respond to findings of low reading performance in its partner schools and communities via its Literacy Boost initiative. Implemented in countries as varied as Malawi, Nepal, Ethiopia, and Pakistan, Literacy Boost communicates assessment results to parents and community members via introductory community meetings. Literacy Boost also mobilizes community-based action to support children’s reading, including conducting parent education sessions, creating local reading materials, and getting community members to facilitate reading activities with children. By adding on community action to its range of interventions, Save the Children seeks to demonstrate that literacy improvement efforts can and should go beyond school walls. This presentation will present Save the Children experiences in mobilizing community action, as well as initial results from participating countries indicating the improvements that community action is making on children’s reading skills.
